The Karnataka High Court recently quashed a criminal case registered against the Chairman and the Managing Directors (MDs) of telecom giant, Airtel for allegedly disclosing the call details of a customer.
Airtel Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal and others had filed a petition before the High Court seeking to set aside the order of the Magistrate and quash all further criminal proceedings.
Justice R Devdas of the Karnataka High Court, while passing the order, stated that Directors of a company can be roped in only if there is sufficient incriminating evidence against them. The High Court further stated that service providers are duty bound to provide information to the Police whenever required to do so.
