Christian Michel, alleged middleman in AgustaWestland chopper case

Christian Michel, alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal on Saturday sought judicial inquiry for being shifted to solitary confinement and violation of his human rights. Following his appeal, a Delhi court sought a report from Tihar Jail authorities on March 5. 

Earlier on February 16, a Delhi court had dismissed Michel's bail plea. Special judge Arvind Kumar had rejected Michel's plea in the cases filed by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate.

Michel, extradited from Dubai, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on December 22 last year. 

On January 5, Michel was sent to judicial custody in the ED case. 

He is also lodged in judicial custody in the CBI case related to the scam.

Michel is among the three alleged middlemen being probed in the case by the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The others are Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa.
