CBI moves HC seeking cancellation of Tyagi's bail

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday approached the Delhi High Court to seek cancellation of bail to former Indian Air Force (IAF) chief S.P. Tyagi in the AgustaWestland chopper deal case.Justice Vipin Sanghi issued notice to Tyagi and asked him to file a reply by January 3.

Tyagi -- the first chief of any wing of the armed forces to be arrested in the country -- and two others were allegedly involved in irregularities in the procurement of 12 AW-101 VVIP helicopters from Britain-based AgustaWestland.Tyagi was granted bail by a trial court on December 26. He was the Air Force chief from 2004 to 2007.The CBI challenged the trial court's order dated December 26.

The CBI told the high court that if Tyagi remained out on bail then he can try to hamper the investigation and tamper with the evidence related to the case.Tyagi remained in custody for 18 days. He was arrested on December 9 but later released on bail.

The former IAF chief has denied the charges of kickbacks.The order on bail for the other two accused -- Tyagi's cousin Sanjeev Tyagi and Gautam Khaitan, a Delhi-based lawyer -- will be delivered on January 4 by the trial court.
