BANGALORE: The state unit of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) demanded the suspension of Bharath Earth Movers Limited (BEML) chief V R S Natarajan, who was allegedly involved in the Tatra vehicle scam.

The Centre has ordered a CBI inquiry into the whole deal. As per the Defence Procurement Policy, it was clear that any procurement should be made from an original equipment manufacturer and not through any middlemen or a secondary supplier. “Ravi Rishi, who acted as a middlemen and is one of the prime accused in the case, would not have carried on with the “corrupt practice” without the knowledge of Natarajan. So, we demand the GOI and the defence ministry to keep Natarajan under suspension for fair investigation,” CITU general secretary  S Prasanna Kumar said.  

Natarajan, however, clarified that BEML had no role to play in this controversy and no finger should be pointed at them.
