As per reports the former board member of Aeromatrix, Gautam Khaitan, has purportedly admitted to having received payments from middlemen Carlo Gerosa and Guido Haschkhe in the VVIP chopper deal. He has allegedly admitted setting up IDS Tunisia, a subsidiary of IDS India, the firm which was one among the many through which the alleged bribe was routed by the middlemen from AgustaWestland to other countries.
