New Delhi: In a major development in the Rs 3,000 crore AgustaWestland VVIP choppers scam, Rajiv Saxena has mentioned former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s son Bakul Nath and nephew Ratul Puri in interrogation statements, said a report.

Saxena, who is a chartered accountant by profession has also named Congress leaders Salman Khurshid and Sonia Gandhi’s close aide Ahmed Patel in his statement.

Saxena was extradited from Dubai to India in July 2019. He was interrogated by the ED which attached his assets worth Rs 385 crore. And, now it has moved the apex court to remove Saxena of his approver status for allegedly not fully disclosing the facts of the case.

Kamal Nath said, “I have stated earlier that I have nothing to do with the companies or transactions of my nephew, Ratul Puri. As far as my son, Bakul Nath, is concerned, he is an NRI based in Dubai. I had heard about him being described as the Beneficial Owner of Pristine River and when I spoke to my son, he said he knew nothing about the company. There are no documents or bank accounts which prove a connection to him. Anyone can open an offshore account and put a name of someone as Beneficial Owner and not even inform him. He may not even know about it.”

Media also reached Salman Khurshid over the matter to which he said, “I am surprised that my name has cropped up as part of the Augusta Westland investigations. Dev Mohan Gupta, the father of Sushen Mohan Gupta is a close family friend and I am his well wisher. Besides knowing him well, I do not know or have any connection with other persons named in the case like Ratul Puri or Rajiv Saxena.”
