In the letter, Digvijay Singh is found expressing his gratitude to the middleman Talwar for allegedly getting his and his family’s air tickets to Houston upgraded from Economy class to Business class. The letter emerges days after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had secured the custody of Deepak Talwar. He has been alleged to be a ‘corporate lobbyist’, involved in several aviation deals during the UPA regime, and acted as a middleman in negotiations to favour foreign private airlines causing colossal losses to national carrier Air India.
Another high-profile fugitive, Rakesh Saxena was extradited from UAE along with Talwar in the same plane of the government of India on January 30, 2019, both accused in the VVIP chopper scam along with the earlier extradited middleman Christian Michel. Michel, in his deposition, had named a certain Italian Lady and ‘Italian Lady’s son R’ in the AgustaWestland scam.
This is not the first time senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh has found himself embroiled in a controversy. Recently, a letter had emerged which established a connection between Digvijaya Singh and Urban Naxals. Details of Digvijaya Singh along with his phone number were found in the letters seized from the suspected Maoists. The Pune police is tightening its noose around the alleged culprits and the recent arrest of Urban Naxal Anand Teltumbde and others is symptomatic of it.
