Vested interests batting for compensation in the Antrix-Devas case

This 2012 news item says it all….

A news item in a popular section of the media with the title “Vodafone, Antrix/ Devas: When government goes back on commitments made, it scares away investors” is obviously batting for the vested interests – especially with regard to the Antrix-Devas agreement that was abandoned due to alleged criminal offence by those who steered and materialised it.

When it comes to Antrix-Dewas, it is not a case of government going back on any commitment. Its a case of crime, where the CBI has already done its investigation and found enough prima facie evidence to book the accused under multiple Sections of IPC and anti corruption law, including criminal conspiracy.

The Indian government is not bound by any compensation ordered by an American Court, any other court or tribunal. The culprits have to be brought to book and that should be the priority of the Government of India.


Antrix will be better off ignoring the US Court order for enforcement and payment of $1.2 billion compensation to Devas

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case against half a dozen private companies based at New Delhi, Jaipur(Rajasthan); Noida(UP) & Gurugram(Haryana) and other unknown persons for allegedly transmitting pop ups to the victims’ personal computers with warnings/bogus messages about serious technical problems including malware infection in their Microsoft Windows Systems.

These companies allegedly advise the victims to install certain anti-malwares or anti-virus, which are essentially PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).

Victims were being given the option to activate PUPs by paying the fee online or by calling a support number advertised in the interface of the program. The victims have been fraudulently influenced in this manner and trapped to maintain their systems properly.

It has also been alleged that the victims were made to pay online by clicking the link on the interface for resolving the non-existent problem or upon ringing up the call centres to seek resolution of the fake problems.

Searches have been conducted at 10 locations including Jaipur, Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Mainpuri (UP) at the premises of the accused companies and the residential premises of several persons.
