Google has taken India's antitrust regulator the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to court related to an ongoing investigation into Google’s Android smartphone agreements that was leaked to the media.

“We are deeply concerned that the Director General’s Report, which contains our confidential information in an ongoing case, was leaked to the media while in the CCI’s custody. Protecting confidential information is fundamental to any governmental investigation, and we are pursuing our legal right to seek redress and prevent any further unlawful disclosures. We cooperated fully and maintained confidentiality throughout the investigative process, and we hope and expect the same level of confidentiality from the institutions we engage with" a Google spokesperson said in statement.
