Home Crime 'RG' received Rs.50 crore between 2004 to 2016 in AgustaWestland Deal: Enforcement Directorate

‘RG’ received Rs.50 crore between 2004 to 2016 in AgustaWestland Deal: Enforcement Directorate

Rajat Gupta has reportedly stated to ED that he has no concerns with the said 'RG' mentioned in Sushen Gupta's documents. Sushen Gupta was arrested by ED under PMLA on March 25.

In a massive development, the Enforcement Directorate has claimed that a person with abbreviations ‘RG’ has received Rs 50 crore between 2004 to 2016 in connection with AgustaWestland deal.

According to a report by India Today, the Enforcement Directorate has made a startling revelation while seeking the custody of accused Sushen Gupta, who was arrested by the ED late on March 25 under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

“Sushen Gupta is misguiding the investigation by deliberately giving wrong abbreviations in his diaries wherein abbreviation ‘RG’ find mention in many pages as well as in pen drive data,” stated the ED application according to India Today TV.

“More than 50 crores is shown to have been received by ‘RG’ in between 2004 to 2016 whereas the ‘RG’ identified by Sushen Gupta, that is Rajat Gupta had admitted having cash transaction with Sushen Gupta from 2007 onwards and the same is being quantified,” the ED application stated.

The Enforcement Directorate believes that Sushen Gupta is deliberately not disclosing the real identity of the man, who is referred to as ‘RG’. Sushen Gupta has claimed that the said “RG” is one Rajat Gupta, Director of Ram Hari Ram Jewellers.

Reportedly, the ED has made efforts to authenticate the claims of Sushen Gupta and also questioned Rajat Gupta. However, Rajat Gupta has replied to ED stating that he has no concern with the ‘RG’ abbreviation and it can be only explained by Sushen Gupta.

Earlier, the ED had also dropped a bomb by mentioning that the name of ‘Mrs. Gandhi’ has come during questioning of Christian Michel in connection with the case.

Recently, the Special CBI Court had accepted Rajiv Saxena’s plea to turn approver in the case. In his application under Section 306 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, Rajiv Saxena had prayed for pardon in the case in exchange of full and true disclosure.

The investigation into the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam has seen great developments since middleman Christian Michel was extradited to India from Dubai. Several revelations have come to light, from the names of “Italian Lady”, to “Italian Lady’s son R“, from how Christian Michel was lobbying for the Eurofighter and against the Rafale deal, to how he had unbridled access to the PMO under Congress regimethe CCS and even the investigative agencies.
