AgustaWestland: Delhi Court orders Rajiv Saxena's statement be recorded

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday ordered the recording of the statement of Dubai-based businessman Rajiv Saxena, who wants to become an approver in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal case.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar marked the file to Chief Metropolitan Magistrate to record Saxena’s statement on March 2.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) told the court that it will respond to Saxena’s plea after taking note of his statement.

Meanwhile, Saxena told the court that he was not under any pressure and wanted to become an approver willingly.

In his application to the court, Saxena said he has cooperated in the investigation and disclosed the facts as known to him.

He said he would make full disclosure of the case if he was granted a pardon.

United Arab Emirates (UAE) security agencies picked Saxena from his Dubai residence on January 30 and extradited him to India the same night.

He was granted bail on medical grounds on Monday. The ED did not oppose his bail application.

According to the ED, in connivance with lawyer Gautam Khaitan, Saxena provided a global corporate structure to launder money for payment to various political leaders, bureaucrats and Indian Air Force (IAF) officials to influence the contract for supplying 12 VVIP helicopters in favour of AgustaWestland.

Saxena’s name was mentioned in a charge sheet filed against his wife Shivani, who has been out on bail after being arrested by the ED.
