Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge Ravinder Kaur dismissed the plea of Chandigarh-based firm M/s Aeromatrix Info Solution Pvt Ltd, seeking release of money from its bank account.

The court said the allegation against the accused firm were serious in nature.

The company requested the court to defreeze its account, saying it was not able to pay salaries to its staff.

The accused firm and its CEO Praveen Bakshi were booked by CBI, which also registered a complaint in March 2013 against 12 people in the VIP chopper deal, including former Air Force chief SP Tyagi.

Four firms Finmeccanica, AgustaWestland, IDS Infotech Ltd. (India) and Aeromatrix were also booked. Investigations are on into bribery allegations in the Rs 3,600 crore deal for 12 AW-101 choppers.
