- Mumbai: Hitting out at Cyrus Mistry for making 'unsubstantiated claims and malicious allegations', Tata Sons today said the former chairman was fully empowered to lead the group and its companies but had "overwhelmingly" lost the confidence of board members. With the contents of Mistry's letter, which he wrote to its Board members after being sacked, becoming public, Tata Sons regretted that "a communication marked confidential to Tata Sons board members has been made public in an unseemly and undignified manner".
