CBI spokesperson Kanchan Prasad said no document specifically mentioned by the Italian prosecution lawyer has been withheld or declined to be provided.

"The documents have been provided expeditiously through proper channel by CBI in consultation with the Ministry of Defence, Government of India. The perceived non-cooperation of CBI is totally incorrect and far from truth," Prasad said.

It has been alleged that the CBI did not provide documents sought by the Italian prosecutors.

India terminated the Rs 3,600 crore deal on January 1 for procuring 12 VVIP AW-101 choppers for the IAF on allegations of payment of kickbacks and involvement of middlemen in the acquisition process by the Anglo-Italian firm.
