NEW DELHI: A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team is to visit London next week to inquire into alleged graft in the purchase of Airbus aircraft almost a decade ago, informed sources said Tuesday.

The team will examine Airbus Executive Vice President Kiran Rao in connection with alleged irregularities in the over Rs.8,000-crore deal for 43 aircraft for the erstwhile Indian Airlines in 2005, the sources said.

The sources said Rao would be questioned for alleged non-fulfilment of contract conditions.
