New Delhi [India], Feb 12 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday strongly opposed the bail plea filed by AgustaWestland 'middleman' Christian Michel in a Delhi court.
The court will hear arguments related to the matter on Wednesday.
Michel had filed bail plea last week, following which the Patiala House Court issued notices to the CBI and ED to file replies by February 12.
The investigative agencies filed their replies in the Patiala House Court today, in which they stated that the plea should be dismissed.
Earlier in the day, the court had permitted Michel to meet his lawyer Rosemary Patrizi.
In line with the rules of Tihar Jail, where Michel is currently lodged, Patrizi will meet her client as a general visitor and not as a lawyer from Monday to Friday between 9 am and 12 noon, the court said.
Michel, the alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland chopper deal case, was extradited from the UAE on December 4 last year. (ANI)
