India.

Roshan Mendis, president, ZUJI and regional vice
president, Travelocity Asia Pacific, said, “We have full faith in the Indian
judiciary. While we want to thank Gurgaon Police for their immediate and prompt
action in the criminal case, we are also pursuing our claim towards the
business losses suffered by us as a result of the theft. This is a rare civil
case where a criminal and forensic investigation has revealed clear evidence of
data theft and wrongdoing.”
