Demand for CBI to submit results of investigation into Air India’s 2007 aircraft order

The Indian Supreme Court has ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to report on the status of an investigation into Air India’s purchase or lease of over 100 aircraft in 2007, which has been blamed for huge losses at the state-owned airline.

The claim was made by the Centre for Public Interest Litigation (PIL) that stated Air India “gave away bilateral rights to private companies” and nearly Rs50,000 crore worth of aircraft were ordered. PIL demanded an investigation into these issues in 2012.
