IT major Infosys served three leading newspapers with defamation notices on Monday.

The three newspapers — The Economic Times , TheTimes of India and TheFinancial Express — have been given 24 hours to remove such articles from their websites and other media, and issue an unconditional apology. In response to The Hindu ’s queries, an Infosys spokesperson said: “The notice speaks for itself and we will act on it.”
