What is the Agusta Westland Case?
Answered by NewsBytes
In February 2010, the UPA government signed a government contract with UK-based AgustaWestland to buy 12 AW101 helicopters for the Indian Air Force for Rs. 3,600 crore. In 2013, the deal was put on hold by the government after Bruno Spagnolin, CEO of Agusta Westland and Guiseppe Orsi, chairman of Finmeccanica, were arrested on charges of bribing middlemen to acquire the deal with IAF.
