"We will work with the Finance Ministry in this matter," he said and added that the ministry was collaborating with the commercial crime division of the police to investigate the issue. — Bernama

Assembly of iPhones could start at Wistron’s existing facility in the suburbs of Bangalore, the person said. The work may be expanded to other suppliers including Hon Hai later, depending on demand, the person said. Apple and India’s officials have met several times amid a prolific exchange of correspondence, but next week’s meeting will be crucial.
