Chopper scam: Court accepts Shivani Saxena's plea to go abroad

A special court of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has allowed AgustaWestland chopper scam accused, Shivani Saxena, to travel abroad.

An ''active'' director of Dubai-based UHY Saxena and Matrix Holdings, Saxena is in judicial custody in connection with a money-laundering case arising out of the Rs. 3,600 crore VVIP chopper scam.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Saxena under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) in July last year.

Her repeated bail pleas were rejected by various courts last year.
