Ousted Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry on Tuesday said allegations by the company of rising expenses and impairment losses when he was at the helm were "another brazen attempt to mislead the public and shareholders."

One of the reasons for a rise in expenses under Mistry's tenure was because Tata Sons was bearing some costs on behalf of the Tata trusts, its biggest shareholder, while impairments and writedowns were due to legacy issues, Mistry's office said in a statement.
