Embraer Aircraft Deal: Defence Ministry wants CBI to investigate bribery allegations

The Defence Ministry has asked the CBI to investigate the Embraer Aircraft deal of 2008 which has come under a cloud over charges of bribery.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation had earlier asked Brazilian company Embraer for an explanation on media reports that the firm had hired an Indian middleman based in the UK to get the deal through in 2008.

The $208-million Embraer Aircraft Deal was signed during the first term of the Congress-led UPA.
