Differences between the promoters of IndiGo came into public on Tuesday with Gangwal alleging serious governance lapses by co-founder Bhatia who had earlier termed his demands as unreasonable.

In a filing to the stock exchanges, InterGlobe Aviation on Tuesday said its board of directors has received a letter from Gangwal and Sebi has also sought a response on the letter. “SEBI has in the meantime asked the company to give its response to this letter by July 19, 2019 with which the company will comply,” the filing said.
