An official of the British High Commission in New Delhi met the reported “middleman” in the AgustaWestland scam, Christian Michel, in Tihar Jail.

He met Michel on Thursday after the government accepted the British High Commission's request for consular access to the 57-year-old UK citizen, who was extradited from United Arab Emirates to India on December 4.

“I can confirm that he has been granted consular access. A second secretary-level officer from the British High Commission has met Christian Michel based on the request we had received last month from the High Commission,” Raveesh Kumar, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said on Friday.

A spokesperson of the British High Commission said that its staff were “supporting” a UK citizen detained in India. The High Commission's official had met Michel to check his welfare, added the spokesperson.

Michel is now in judicial custody in Tihar Jail.
