New Delhi[India], Dec. 17 (ANI): Ex Air Force Chief SP Tyagi along with other accused in the AgustaWestland chopper case will be produced before the Patiala House court here today as their Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) custody ends. Earlier, the CBI had moved court seeking a 10-day custody to interrogate Tyagi and the other accused in the case. Last Friday, the CBI had arrested Tyagi, his cousin Sanjeev and lawyer Gautam Khaitan. The Rs 3600-crore deal to supply 12 VVIP helicopters from AgustaWestland came under the scanner after Italian authorities claimed that the company paid bribes. Tyagi has been accused of influencing the deal in favour of AgustaWestland during his tenure as the IAF chief, however, he has repeatedly denied the allegations. CBI said that they have received "incriminating documents" from Italy and Mauritius against the formet IAF chief. (ANI)
