adidas turns heat on former India MD

Stepping up its battle with its former India managing director Subhinder Singh Prem, German sportswear major adidas on Sunday petitioned Indian law enforcement authorities to initiate a criminal investigation into commercial irregularities at Reebok India.

The development comes two days after Prem moved the Delhi High Court challenging his "termination" as well as seeking damages and contractual dues from adidas. A few days before that, he had also served a defamation notice on his former employers.
