Chargesheet in AgustaWestland deal this year, SC told

New Delhi, July 15 (IANS) The Centre on Friday told the Supreme Court that the chargesheet in the AgustaWestland helicopter deals will be filed this year and the matter is being investigated by the SIT.

Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar told a bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra that a FIR was registered in 2013 and a Special Investigation Team was formed this year.

The court also expunged the names of four of the five people mentioned in the PIL as the Solicitor General told the bench that they were occupying constitutional positions.

Sharma told the court that the names of five people who were named in the judgment of the Italian court were not in the FIR.

Disposing of the PIL, the bench said that after the filing of the chargesheet, if petitioner advocate felt that the names of some people had not been included, then he can approach the court with material supporting his contention.
