This has come as the biggest jolt and an embarrassment, as the person of highest cadre in Air Force has been arrested. SP Tyagi has brought huge disgrace to the uniform he wore by backstabbing the country. The Augusta Westland who which became the biggest scam in the Armed forces also involves the names of many Congress people who have been benefited by the deal.

During the month of April, the Italian courts had clearly stated that Sonia Gandhi was the main driving force behind the Agusta Westland Chopper deal and was the main beneficiary.

This was the first time a court had directly named Sonia Gandhi, Ahamed Patel and Manmohan Singh in the biggest chopper scam ever. Now after the arrest of SP Tyagi, more information is said to be revealed. Its a shameful act that the governmnet along with former Air Chief Marshall was involved in such grave act of corruption.
