Notices issued to the Central Government in respect of AugustaWestland graft

Supreme Court: A bench of Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh, JJ issued notice to Central Government on a PIL seeking registration of a police complaint against those named in an Italian court judgment in the AgustaWestland chopper graft case.

The Italian Court had, in it’s judgment, mentioned several names in some Congress leaders like Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as as those VVIPs likely to use the helicopters. The petitioner Manohar Lal Sharma had asked the Court if the said judgment was not enough to implicate those people under Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.
