AgustaWestland Case: ED Moves Court Seeking NBW Against Ratul Puri

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday knocked on the doors of a Delhi court, seeking issuance of a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s nephew and industrialist Ratul Puri in the AgustaWestland case.

This comes a day after Special CBI Judge Arvind Kumar dismissed the anticipatory bail application filed by Puri.

Puri is under the scanner of probe agencies for allegedly receiving kickbacks in the AgustaWestland deal through his companies.

The ED has alleged that accounts associated with firms owned and operated by Puri were used to receive kickbacks and launder money in the Agusta Westland deal for VIP helicopters.
