Tatra probe: CBI to quiz Vectra chief, Natarajan

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing alleged irregularities in the supply of the all-terrain Tatra trucks to the Indian army since 1997, will again question London-based businessman Ravi Rishi and Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML) suspended chairman VRS Natarajan.

The CBI's move came in the wake of its investigators having gathered set of fresh details and evidence related to the alleged irregularities, according to a CBI source. Apart from the two suspects, the CBI is also likely to quiz two former BEML chiefs, according to the source.

Rishi's Vectra group was the supplier of the vehicles for its Czech manufacturer and had been dealing with the BEML for the same.

“We have got some fresh details in the case during our searches at suspects' premises and will question the Vectra chief and Natarajan again to verify facts in their statements given to us so far,” said the source. The CBI's case FIR had charged unknown officials of the Vectra group, the Indian army, Ministry of Defence and the BEML for alleged irregularities in the supply of Tatra.
