The “ethical concern” raised by ousted Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry relates to alleged payments to an aide of Mittu Chandilya, former chief executive of Air Asia India Ltd (AAIL), for help in “setting up meetings with chief ministers and politicians”, says a forensic audit report by Deloitte India.
On October 25, a day after Mistry was removed, he wrote an email to the Tata Sons board saying a reporst had found fraudulent transactions worth Rs 22 crore between Air Asia and companies in India and abroad.
HT has reviewed the key findings of the Deloitte India report, commissioned by the chairman of the Tata group’s audit committee at Mistry’s insistence.

More than a week after Salman Khan’s bodyguard, Gurmeet Singh aka Shera, was booked for assault, CCTV footage showed the entire story was fabricated by the complainant, Athar Gulam Ansari and his friends.
The complainant had alleged that after an argument at a Versova restaurant, Shera had pulled out a pistol and hit him with the butt of the weapon on his shoulder repeatedly, fracturing his collar bone.
“Action will be taken against the complainant and his friends,” said a police officer, on condition of anonymity.
