DELHI HIGH COURT STOPPED EX-IAF CHIEF TYAGI, ACCUSED IN AGUSTAWESTLAND VVIP CHOPPER SCAM FROM TRAVELLING TO INDONESIA :

The Delhi High Court on  stayed a trial court order allowing former Indian Air Force chief S P Tyagi, a key accused in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam, to travel to Indonesia.  Decrying the ‘special treatment’ given to Tyagi, Justice I S Mehta said, “I do not understand, why the accused persons always want to travel abroad…why should he (Tyagi) be given the special treatment.”  Staying the trial court order till July 12, it agreed to the contention of the CBI that the former 71-year-old IAF chief, who is on bail, may tamper with the ongoing probe in the case.  The court, which is hearing the CBI’s appeal against the grant of bail to Tyagi and two other accused in the case, said, “You (Tyagi) are facing trial in a case and also getting special treatment. What is this? Till July 12, you will not travel. The trial court order is stayed till that time.” The high court’s interim order came on a plea of CBI challenging the trial court’s May 24 decision permitting Tyagi to travel abroad.   The Rediff.com : 30th.
