Travelocity India, a part of US-based online travel company Travelocity Global, has accused Cleartrip.com chief executive officer Stuart Crighton of conniving with senior officials of B2B hotel portal Desiya.com, which is now owned by Travelocity India through its subsidiary Travelguru.com, to commit data theft. Cleartrip has termed the charges as baseless.

In an FIR (first information report) filed at a Gurgaon police station, Travelocity India has alleged that Desiya.com managing director Amit Taneja shared the “entire hotel business model, projections and other proprietary information with Stuart”. The FIR also includes the name of Sanjeet Singh, regional manager, North; and Imran Ansari, a travel consultant at Desiya.com, who have been accused of passing on data to Cleartrip.

On their part, Cleartrip officials have said they are aware of the FIR which names them, but have termed the charges as baseless. “We are convinced that the said FIR is misconceived, baseless and likely filed with ulterior motives,” a Cleartrip spokesperson has said, adding, “We have full faith in the judiciary and are extending co-operation to the relevant agencies.” [Source: Business Standard]
