Google is in legal trouble again, this time in India with the Competition Commission of India, which has begun an antitrust investigation against the company.
According to two sources talking with Reuters, the CCI began looking into Google for abusing its power as the most popular mobile operating system and blocking rivals in India beginning in February.
By mid-April, sources confirmed it was decided there was enough evidence to launch a full investigation, although this information was never made public and the CCI has not responded to requests for comments.
However, inside sources say the probe will last about a year, and that Google executives would likely be summoned to appear before the CCI in the coming months.
After a similar case in Europe where Google faced fines of €4.3 billion (around $5 billion USD), the CCI has a strong precedence for its case.
