Heres what happened on custody issue of Rajeev Saxena, the accused in Agusta case

In the ongoing probe in the Rs 3600 crore AgustaWestland mone laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate has not sought any further custody of Rajeev Saxena.

The issue came up for hearing in a Delhi court on Tuesday.

It need be mentioned that Rajeev Saxena, whose Enforcement Directorate custody ends Tuesday, sought to talk to Special Judge Arvind Kumar in private, without the presence of his lawyers, after which the court initiated on-camera proceedings in the case.

On Friday, the agency had sought his custody from the court, saying the probe is at a crucial stage.

Rajeev Saxena is one of the accused named in the chargesheet filed by ED in the case.

Christian Michel, former AgustaWestland and Finmeccanica directors Giuseppe Orsi and Bruno Spagnolini, former Air Force chief SP Tyagi and Saxena’s wife Shivani have also been named by the agency in the chargesheet.
