Tata Trusts boss Venkataramanan blames Cyrus Mistry, says CBI probe is revenge legal action
Updated : May 31, 2018 07:22 AM IST
Venkataramanan said he has been wrongly named as an accused by the CBI on operational matters in which he had little or no role to play.
Central Bureau of Investigation has launched a case against airline AirAsia India, its Malaysian parent AirAsia Bhd, and senior executives, including group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes, among others, for allegedly lobbying to relax aviation rules for AirAsia India with kickbacks to officials.
Mistry, a scion of the Shapoor Pallonji family, was sacked as Tata boss in October 2016 and has since been engaged in a legal battle with the Tata Group.
