The Enforcement Directorate today filed a supplementary charge sheet before a Delhi court against an alleged defence agent Sushen Mohan Gupta in a money laundering case. Gupta was arrested by the ED in the AgustaWestland VVIP choppers scam.

He was arrested under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and is in judicial custody. Gupta moved a bail application which will be heard on Thursday, when the court considers the charge sheet.

While filing the final report, the ED informed the judge that the statement of Rajiv Saxena, another middleman who recently turned approver in the case, and certain diaries were submitted before the court in a sealed cover.

The agency told the court that there was clinching evidence of Gupta's role in the chopper scam as well as in various other defence deals. (AIR NEWS)
