hypnosec writes: US, European nations and now India is behind Google’s alleged anti-competitive practices as it has been revealed by an Indian minister that the search engine giant is going to be probed by India's antitrust regulator. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) announced that it is going to launch inquiry into Google’s business practices having received a formal complaint from Consumer Unity and Trust Society (CUTS) International regarding some potential anticompetitive practices being adopted by Google in India. No further details were released in the statement though. In an August 2011 letter [PDF], CUTS had written to the CCI that “Google can potentially engage in anticompetitive activities to the possible detriment of these markets in India and that therefore such activities in this regard need to be thoroughly investigated by the CCI.” Such a probe was waiting to happen as CCI has received quite a few complaints against Google from different companies.
