Tehelka.com on Tuesday came out with some damning disclosures of how defence deals are struck.
At a largely attended media conference in the national capital, tehelka.com editor in chief Tarun Tejpal took the lid off Operation West End, which was investigated by Aniruddha Bahal and Mathew Samuel. With the eight-month long operation he said tehelka.com blew the lid off the nexus between politicians, senior defence personnel and fixers who come together every time defence deals are in the offing.
tehelka.com also screened a film, shot by hidden cameras, that revealed just how deals are struck. On film Bharatiya Janata Party president Bangaru Laxman was shown accepting Rs 100,000 towards the happy new year party fund.
