CBI likely to probe Embraer aircraft deal

The CBI on Thursday started examining the reference received for looking into corruption charges in the purchase of Embraer aircraft in 2008.

The move comes a day after the Ministry of Defence sought a probe into the deal. A decision on whether to take up the case — purchase of three Embraer-145 jets for Defence Research and Development Organisation — will be taken soon after analysing the documents provided by the ministry.

A senior official said the CBI will file an FIR or initiate a preliminary enquiry if it finds that there is enough prima facie evidence of irregularities in the purchase.
