    Alphabet Inc’s Google says that an India anti-trust ruling that found it to be guilty of search bias could cause “irreparable” harm and reputational loss to the company. To refresh your memory, Indian Antitrust watchdog has fined Google Rs.135.86 crores back in February.  The firm slammed Google for abusing its position in online web search and has also slammed the company for preventing its partners from using competing search services.

This isn't the first time Google is facing something like this, ...
