Bangalore: Antrix, the commercial arm of ISRO has moved a local court seeking directions to restrain Devas Multi-media from proceedings with the arbitration it has
filed against it in an international court in Paris on cancellation of agreement on S band spectrum allocation.

Antrix, which cancelled its agreement with Devas, filed
the petition before the Additional City Civil and Session
Court, seeking an interim injunction against Devas.

Judge DB Patil, after hearing counsels for Antrix,
posted the matter for February 25 for further arguments.

The suit is to restrain Devas from proceeding with the
arbitration at International Court of Arbitration in Paris.

Devas has approached the ICC tribunal challenging the
cancellation of agreement by Antrix with it on S band spectrum
allocation.

The Government after cancelling the Antrix-Devas deal for
reasons of national security also debarred four ISRO
scientists, including its former chairman G Madhavan Nair from
holding any government posts for acts of commission in the
deal.

Nair and others have questioned the government decision.
