New Delhi, Mar 15: A Delhi Court on Friday allowed Enforcement Directorate (ED) to interrogate lobbyist Deepak Talwar in Tihar jail in a fresh case related to the purchase of 43 aircraft by erstwhile Indian Airlines from France's Airbus Industrie in 2005.
The ED submitted before the court that the case has been filed against Indian Airlines officials and other unknown persons. It was alleged that the officials by abusing their position as public servants in connivance with Airbus Industrie caused undue pecuniary advantage to Airbus Industrie and caused corresponding undue loss to the government exchequer in carrying out the purchase of 43 aircraft by Indian Airlines from Airbus Industrie, France.
The ED filed an application before the court seeking to interrogate Talwar who is currently in judicial custody in a separate case related to negotiations to favour foreign private airlines causing losses to Air India. (UNI)
