Two curious developments took place after the CBI cleared Air-India managing director Michael Mascarenhas of corruption charges and paved the way for his reinstatement, barely two days before his retirement. One, civil aviation ministry officials refused comment on an issue as important as the reinstatement of the head of the country's international carrier. And two, telephone operators at Air-India's Mumbai office found their lines jammed with calls from lawyers offering services in case Mascarenhas decides to sue those responsible for the slur on his name.

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).
