"Not at all. It was not even on our mind," Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said when asked whether Delhi Police was in talks with the company for buying helicopters.

He was reacting to reports that documents suggest that AgustaWestland offered commissions to a company if it bagged a deal to supply helicopters and spare parts to Delhi Police.

"At that time I was the Special CP (Administration). This thought had not even come into our minds," he said. On allegations that a policeman tried accessing call details records of BJP leader Arun Jaitely, he said a probe is on.
