New Delhi, Jan 25, 2017: The Delhi High court on Wednesday deferred the hearing of a Central Investigation of India (CBI) plea on bail cancellation of Former IAF Chief SP Tyagi and others in Agusta Westland case till February 1.
CBI’s pleas, challenging the bail granted by a trial court to S P Tyagi, his cousin Sanjeev Tyagi and lawyer Gautam Khaitan, was listed for hearing before Justice I S Mehta who fixed the matter for arguments next week.
The high court had earlier issued notices to the three accused on the pleas in which CBI has alleged that they were influential persons who could hamper the ongoing probe into the case if they remained out of custody.
71-year old S P Tyagi, who was arrested by CBI on December 9 last year along with Sanjeev Tyagi and Khaitan in the case relating to alleged irregularities in the procurement of 12 VVIP choppers from UK-based AgustaWestland during the UPA-2 regime, was granted bail by trial court on December 26. Tyagi had retired as IAF chief in 2007.
