AgustaWestland Scam Middleman Rajiv Saxena Submits Diary, Pen-Drive and Details of the Deal

Author : Prasant Kumar | Posted on: 2019-03-21

In a big boost to investigation agencies, Rajiv Saxena, one of the accused in the AgustaWestland case, who had turned approver in the case earlier, has submitted a diary and a pen drive to the Enforcement Directorate, which purportedly have details of the Rs 423 crore alleged kickbacks paid in the VVIP chopper deal.


According to some media reports, the diary belonging to Saxena has the details regarding the way in which money was moved from the UK subsidiary of Finmeccanica to various shell companies in Tunisia, Mauritius, Dubai and Swiss banks besides also several beneficiaries in India.


It is believed that the evidence contained in the diary and other documents in the pen drive may throw up “significant disclosures” with regard to the deal and help the investigation in reaching at a conclusion with regard to modus operendi that were followed to pay the bribe in the deal.


Recently, Rajiv Saxena had submitted his statements before the court after he turned approver in the case. Rajiv Saxena was picked up by UAE government security agencies in Dubai and was later extradited to India on January 30, 2019.


The kickbacks moved from one company to another as consultancy fees. From the Tunisian entities, the bribe proceeds were transferred to Interstellar Technologies Ltd and others in Mauritius and further to UHY Saxena and Matrix Holdings Ltd in Dubai.


The AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam has been nothing short of a fast-paced thriller ever since middleman Christian Michel was extradited to India from Dubai. Several revelations came 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 regime, the CCS and even the investigative agencies. In another massive headway, yesterday the Modi government managed the get Rajiv Saxena to India, who is one of the prime accused in the scam.
