 PIC COURTESY- THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS

October 5, 2017: Carlo Gerosa, an Italian national who is one of the key accused in the Agusta Westland helicopter deal corruption case, has been arrested in Italy by local authorities, according to official sources.

Gerosa was detained a few days ago on his return from Switzerland based on a Red Corner Notice request from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing a case of alleged money-laundering in connection with the Rs 3,600-crore deal, sources said.
A joint team of the ED and the CBI is investigating the case, for which Gerosa’s interrogation and statement will be crucial.
In 2014, India scrapped the contract with AgustaWestland, the British subsidiary of Italian defence major Finmeccanica, for supplying 12 AW-101 VVIP choppers to the IAF over alleged breach of contract and charges of kickbacks of Rs 423 crore.
In July this year, the CBI arrested former IAF chief S P Tyagi along with his cousin Sanjeev Tyagi and businessman Gautam Khaitan for their alleged involvement in the case — the ED has already filed multiple chargesheets on the deal.
According to the ED, Gerosa and another middleman Guido Haschke allegedly set up a maze of companies to move money to India to be paid to relatives of Tyagi and several others to help swing the deal.
