Agusta “Middleman” Christian Michel Sent To 5-Day CBI Custody


Christian Michel, the alleged middleman in the AgustaWestland chopper deal extradited by Dubai, has been sent to five-day custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation by a court in Delhi. The CBI, which produced Michel in court this afternoon after questioning him all night since his arrival in Delhi on a special flight, wanted his custody for 14 days. India is investigating charges that Michel, a British national, organised bribes to push a Rs. 3,600-crore contract for VVIP helicopters to be purchased for top Indian leaders. His extradition came through on a day Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj held discussions with her UAE counterpart Abdullah bin Zayed in Abu Dhabi.
