The court has sought reply on the application from the Tihar Jail authorities till Monday
Michel moved the application through his lawyers, claiming that he had approached jail authorities in this regard, but his request was rejected. He also submitted that he will bear all the necessary costs in this regard.
On January 5, the role of Michel came out in other deals as well, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) told a Delhi court which sent the alleged middleman in the AgustaWestland case to judicial custody till February 26.
"His (Christian Michel) role has also come out in other defence deals and money seems to be flowing in that also. We have documents to show they misled the Italian court. Our probe has been fruitful. We have investigated how cash circulated through multiple bank accounts and Hawala transactions," said ED counsel.
On December 29, the court had sent Michel to a seven-day ED remand.
According to the ED charge sheet, Michel had received kickbacks to the tune of 30 million Euros from AgustaWestland for the deal involving the purchase of 12 VIP helicopters. The deal, signed in 2007, was scrapped in 2013 following bribery allegations.
