The Central Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday (13 November) told the Delhi High Court that it is filing a "massive charge sheet in the AgustaWestland case".
The submissions were made before a single Judge bench of Justice Mukta Gupta while it was hearing the bail plea filed by AgustaWestland deal alleged middlemen Christian Michel James in both CBI and ED case.
"We are filing a massive charge sheet which would have the names of some public servants/bureaucrats," said Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) DP Singh as he sought more time to file a response on the bail plea filed by Michel.
Michel was taken into custody by the CBI on 5 December, 2018 after his extradition from Dubai, while the ED took him into custody on 22 December, 2018.
He is in judicial custody in both the cases. Michel, Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa are the three alleged middlemen being probed in the Rs 3,600-crore VVIP chopper scam by the two central agencies.
