Thejesh GN, a Bangalore based programmer who had accused Airtel of secretly spying on its 3G internet users has now demanded apology from an Israel-based company for serving him a legal notice.
Earlier this month, Thejesh had tweeted that Airtel was secretly injecting lines of code into users' browsing sessions over its 3G network without any prior knowledge of the customers.
In reply Airtel issued a statement saying that the code is part of a tool which helps users to keep track of their data consumptions.
Later it was revealed that Airtel has actually partnered with Ericsson, which was getting a helping hand from Flash Networks, in injecting this code into the web pages of the users.
After the revelation, Flash Networks, an Israeli company sent Thejesh a legal notice for revealing the issue.
Responding to the notice, Thejesh demanded apology and accused the company of trying ‘to intimidate and silence’ him.
