Christian James Michel, an alleged middleman in the AgustaWestland chopper scam, on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that just because he was a British citizen and did not have “deep roots” in the Indian society that cannot be a ground for the trial court to deny him bail.

Michel, a British aviation consultant, was arrested on December 22, 2018. Investigators had alleged that he was involved in the 2010 sale of the VVIP helicopters to the Indian government.
