Devas Multimedia sues Air India

Shareholders in Devas Multimedia have sued Air India in an effort to recover sums Devas won in arbitration awards against the Indian government and seize its flagship carrier’s foreign assets, according to a U.S. District Court filing.

The shareholders said Devas and its affiliates were owed more than $1.5 billion by the Indian government according to a Reuters report.

Describing state-owned Air India as the “alter ego” of India, three Devas investors – Devas (Mauritius) Ltd, Telcom Devas Mauritius Ltd and Devas Employees Mauritius Pvt Ltd – said in the petition to the U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York reviewed by Reuters the airline should be held liable for the country’s debts and obligations.
