New Delhi, Feb 17: Moving swiftly, the government Saturday named a two-member CBI team and a senior defence ministry official who are to leave for Italy soon to probe the allegations of kickbacks in the VVIP chopper deal.




The move came a day after it put on hold the $750 million/Rs.3,600 crore deal for the 12 AgustaWestland 101 choppers and launched the process to cancel the deal with Italian firm Finmeccanica. The government has also issued a show cause notice to Britain-based AgustWestland asking why the contract should not be scrapped in view of the corruption allegations.
