New Delhi: The Ministry of Defence has served a show cause notice to helicopter manufacturer company Agusta Westland for the cancellation of chopper deal.





The step was initiated after the expose of paying kickbacks worth Rs. 360 crore to Indian middlemen for a chopper deal of Rs 3,600 crore.

The Ministry has given the firm four weeks time to respond.

The latest initiative by the Defence Ministry comes soon after the Attorney General gave his opinion that there was breach of contractual obligations and the integrity pact by the firm, sources said here.
