Apart from this the FIR has named plenty of officials from the Air Asia Aviation Company including- “Tony” Fernandes, Group CEO Air Asia Malaysia, the company Air Asia, Travel Food owner Sunil Kapoor, Air Asia Director R Venkatraman, aviation consultant Deepak Talwar, Director of Singapore-based SNR Trading Rajendra Dubey and other unnamed officials.

The officials said that the CBI is looking for the accused at six locations in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bengaluru. Tony Fernandes has been found guilty of apparently seeking to influence the government servants for clearances and the amputation of the 5/20 rule of aviation.
