NEW DELHI: Lawyer Gau­tam Khai­tan, an ac­cused in the Agusta-West­land case, re­port­edly ad­mit­ted to the CBI on Thurs­day that he re­ceived pay­ments from Carlo Gerosa and Guido Haschke, two mid­dle­men key to the 2010 VVIP chop­per deal.

Khai­tan, how­ever, re­jected al­le­ga­tions that the pay­ments were part of any bribes paid to him by the two Euro­pean mid­dle­men. “Khai­tan ad­mit­ted to tak­ing pay­ments from Euro­pean mid­dle­men, Guido Haschke and Carlo Gerosa, but the CBI does not agree with the rea­sons cited by him for ac­cept­ing the pay­ments based on ev­i­dence that it has,” an agency source said.
