The complaint, a precursor to a Preliminary Enquiry or a Regular case, was registered today on the basis of details given to the agency by ministry of defence (MoD).
“It’s just a formality, MoD’s reference was filed as a complaint. Our team will visit Italy within a week to find ways of gathering vital probe-related documents from the courts and probe officials,” said the source.
CAG to audit dealThe CAG is auditing the deal and the report can be expected soon.
“CAG conducts audit of the defence ministry and we have done it in this case (AgustaWestland deal) too. It will come to your notice very soon,” Vinod Rai said in Mumbai.
Besides routine cognizance, CAG is also mandated to take suo motu notice and follow-up action against acts of omission and commission in deals entered to by the defence ministry.
