New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Jagdish Tytler was on Friday questioned by the CBI after arrested arms dealer Abhishek Verma claimed that he met the leader regularly after his arrest last month.
The CBI wants to verify whether the meetings were held in connection with the stalling of the blacklisting of Swiss defence firm Rheinmetall Air Defence AG (RAD).
CBI sources, however, say that Tytler has denied it.
Verma was booked for allegedly taking USD 5.3 lakh from the firm to stall black-listing proceedings initiated against it by the government in the Ordnance Factory Board scam.
