An Enforcement Directorate (ED) team reportedly started questioning Rajiv Saxena (the co-accused in Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland case) and corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar, who were deported to India from the UAE last night, at around 4 am.
Deepak Talwar is wanted by both the ED and CBI in a case of allegedly misusing over Rs 90 crore taken through the foreign funding route. The ED arrested both the men under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The duo will be produced before a special court later in the day. Dubai authorities had picked up Saxena and Talwar on Wednesday “in assistance” to a request made by Indian agencies.
