New Delhi, June 21: A trust in England which offered scholarships to Indian students has come under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate probing the AgustaWestland scam.

England trust under ED scanner

ED officials say that so far there are not too many details. We are scrutinising the case and trying to ascertain the exact nature of the relationship Michel and the Indians had with the trust, the ED officials say.

Numbers used by Michel

The ED recently filed a chargesheet in which it had named Michel. The ED chargesheet speaks about the calls that Michel made to his several contacts in India through whom he sent in the kickbacks to ensure that the VVIP chopper deal was through.

The ED lists out the numbers that Michel had used. Further investigations also show that he had tried to find out if any of the case papers had reached the CBI. He had provided a new number to one of his contacts in India and had told him to call him only when he is given a missed call.

The numbers that the ED has listed out which were used by Michel are + 478-41374332, +971501409344, +477-88723371, +715-08829191 +6597330898, +33618262994, +6597337898, +971561480135.
