A Delhi court Friday allowed the CBI to interrogate Christian Michel, alleged middleman in the AgustaWestland chopper scam, in Tihar Central Jail where he is lodged. Special Judge Arvind Kumar permitted CBI to quiz Michel from September 24 to 26.

The investigative agency had told the court that Michel needs to be confronted with some more documents. The court had recently denied bail to Michel, who was extradited from Dubai and arrested by the ED on December 22 last year.
