Former Air chief marshal SP Tyagi’s cousin Sanjeev Tyagi on Saturday rubbished allegations of his involvement in the tainted AgustaWestland chopper deal in an exclusive interview to CNN-IBN. Speaking to Rajdeep Sardesai, Sanjeev, mentioned in the Italian probe reports as ‘Julie’ Tyagi, said that the allegations against him and his cousin SP Tyagi were baseless and had maligned the image of their families.
“I have no links with AgustaWestland. I am not aware of any deal. I did not receive any payment. (Guido Ralph) Haschke is lying. Finmeccanica is trying to cover up its own bungling. The charges are baseless. It is very easy to tarnish someone’s reputation, but can the media pay it back?” he said.
