The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and British-national Christian Michel, alleged middleman arrested in the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper case, on Saturday (April 6) sought before a Delhi court an inquiry into the purported leakage of the supplementary chargesheet filed in the case to media.
The ED urged the court to issue a notice to a news organisation asking it to explain how it accessed the documents, whereas Michel supported the demand of a probe while accusing the agency of politicising the matter.
ED's special public prosecutors DP Singh and NK Matta claimed that the matter was "serious".
"The chargesheet's copy is yet to be supplied to the accused persons. However, Michel's lawyers came to know what we have written in it and filed an application on that behalf. This is a very serious matter and an inquiry must be ordered to ascertain how the copy of the chargesheet was leaked," the ED said.
