New Delhi: CBI has sent a letter to the Indian embassy in Italy seeking details on the arrest of Guido Ralph Haschke, the alleged middleman in the Rs 3,600 crore AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal, by Swiss authorities.  





The arrest was made in Switzerland yesterday on the request of Italian authorities probing allegations of bribery in the contract for 12 VVIP helicopters.  

Haschke, who is among 13 accused, booked by CBI in connection with the corruption case, will be extradited to Italy next week.

Highly placed CBI sources said the letter has been sent to the Indian embassy seeking details on his custody and the ongoing probe.
