AgustaWestland Scam: Christian Michel’s bail plea rejected by the Court

Michel was extradited to India form the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on December 4, 2018.

A Delhi Special court today rejected the bail plea of the alleged middleman Christian Michel in Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland scam. “Both the bail applications are dismissed,” said a Bench of Special Judge Arvind Kumar while hearing Michel’s plea.

Michel had contended in his bail plea that he has been in custody since December 4, 2018, in the cases registered by the CBI and the ED and the investigation had to be completed by February 3. The two investigating agencies, on the other hand, had expressed the apprehension before the Special Court that the accused might flee from India if he was granted bail as he has close proximity and influence with highly placed persons. The agencies had contended that the alleged middleman has “no roots in India and his past conduct makes, amply clear that there exists a reasonable apprehension of him evading the process of law”.

Highlighting the possibility that the alleged VVIP Chopper Scam middleman might tamper with the evidence in the current case, the agencies said that he has “closely linked to certain influential people and there exists a reasonable apprehension of the applicant tamper with the evidence of the instant case”.

Michel was extradited to India form the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on December 4, 2018.
