Ottavi Quattrocchi
Mumbai, Oct 11: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Rajnath Singh has alleged that the Centre was pressuring the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to let off Italian business Ottavio Quattrocchi in the Bofors case.

He also said that despite an Interpol Red cornor notice against Quattrocchi, the UPA government recently withdrew all cases against him.

"When the NDA (BJP-led National Democratic Alliance) was in power at the centre, we had frozen Quattrocchi's bank accounts in London," Singh said.

His statements came after Congress president Sonia Gandhi addressed a massive election rally at the Bandra-Kurla Complex, around five kilometres from Shivaji Park.
