India Deepak Talwar: Charges against corporate lobbyist of UPA era

Deepak Talwar: Charges against corporate lobbyist of UPA era

Here is a list of charges against corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar whom a Delhi court sent to 14-day judicial custody on Thursday

New Delhi: A Delhi court Thursday sent corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar, arrested in money laundering case, to 14-days judicial custody.

Special Judge Santosh Snehi Mann sent Talwar to the judicial custody after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said that it does not need him for further interrogation in its custody.

The court has posted the matter for next hearing on 28 February.

The ED had claimed earlier that Talwar has links with fugitive Vijay Mallya in a money laundering case related to the negotiations favouring foreign private airlines and causing loss to national carrier Air India.

Talwar was booked by the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in criminal cases of corruption, while the Income Tax Department charged him with tax evasion.

The dubious Deepak Talwar

  1. Nexus with UPA: The ED is investigating payoffs of more than Rs 270 crore deposited in Bank of Singapore by international airlines, besides Rs 88 crore received in an NGO of Talwar. There are possible links between some top ministers and bureaucrats in the previous UPA government and Talwar. 

The money trail, where it is suspected that Rs 90 crore was withdrawn from bank accounts of Talwar-controlled entities and distributed to politicians and officials who could have had a role in the tweaking of rules to benefit certain foreign aircraft manufacturers and airlines, needs to be established.
  2. FCRA violation, forgery, criminal conspiracy: Talwar allegedly hatched a criminal conspiracy, committed forgery and violated several Sections of the FCRA by diverting Rs 90.72 crore worth of foreign funds meant for ambulances and other articles received by his NGO from Europe’s leading missile manufacturing company.
  3. Talwar’s deep roots in government: The ED has to dig out the names of officials of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, National Aviation Company of India Ltd and Air India, who favoured foreign airlines, including Qatar Airways, Emirates and Air Arabia, by making national carrier Air India give up profit-making routes and timings.                      Talwar, who is in the ED custody, was deported from Dubai on 30 January and was arrested by the agency after landing here.
