"Following recent reports concerning the alleged involvement of AgustaWestland in irregularities relating to a contract for the supply of helicopters to the Indian government, Finmeccanica highlights that it has acted correctly throughout the 40 years it has operated in India," the Italian company said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Finmeccanica is confident AgustaWestland will demonstrate it has fully complied with Indian law," it added
