After recording the statements of two former governors in the Rs 3,546-crore VVIP chopper scam, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has moved to examine former Intelligence Bureau director and Governor of Andhra Pradesh E S L Narasimhan as a witness.
As per the records available with the agency Naras-imhan, along with then NSA M K Narayanan and then SPG Chief B V Wanchoo, attended the March 1, 2005 meeting where the decision to reduce service ceiling — maximum height at which a helicopter can perform optimally — was taken, making AgustaWestland eligible for the deal.
The agency had also questioned former West Bengal governor Narayanan and former Goa governor Wanchoo as witnesses. Both Narayanan and Wanchoo submitted their resignation soon after their questioning as Centre also mounted pressure on the two to quit. However, MHA sources said that there is no immediate plans to shift Narsimhan as Governor.
