The agency, in its order issued against the Tyagi brothers, Sanjeev, Sandeep and Rajeev, said its investigations found that the 'proceeds of crime' of this deal were allegedly used by them in the acquisition of these properties which have now been seized under law.
"Following painstaking investigations, five immovable properties of Tyagi brothers worth Rs 6.20 crore have been provisionally attached," the ED said in a statement here. The attached assets include a flat in phase-V in Gurgaon, two others in Sector-50 of Noida, one such property in the upmarket K G Marg area of Delhi and a 5th-floor flat in a business centre in Kaushambi in adjoining Ghaziabad. Sources said the stated value of these posh dwellings is just the book price and the actual market value could be many times more than this amount.
The agency had registered a criminal case in this deal last year under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and has said that about Rs 423 crore (58 million Euro) was allegedly paid by European businessmen Christian Michel, Carlo Gerosa and Guido Haschke to swing the deal in favour of AgustaWestland in UK, a subsidiary of Ms Finmeccanica, Italy.
The deal, which was scrapped by the government following allegations of corruption, was inked to purchase 12 advanced helicopters for use by Indian VVIPs and the procurement amount was Rs 3,600 crore.
