Speaking to Outlook, Mascarenhas admitted he was contemplating taking legal action against a few bureaucrats and Air-India officials, who he felt were behind the current crisis (see interview).

Industry sources said counter-charges would primarily be directed towards the troika of Air-India commercial director V.K. Verma, civil aviation secretary A.H. Jung and former civil aviation minister Sharad Yadav. The fourth person in the line of fire could be Air-India's chief vigilance officer M.B. Sagar, who prepared the initial report against Mascarenhas with Verma's help, based on which the CBI initiated proceedings. Mascarenhas was suspended on May 23 for allegedly granting undue favours to a London-based general sales agent (GSA), Welcome Travels, resulting in a Rs 1.7-crore loss to the airline.
