A report has indicated that there is a Vodafone Idea-Google deal brewing and that the popular search engine may buy a 5 per cent stake in the telco. This caused Vodafone Idea share price to skyrocket up to 35 per cent in the intraday trade and it finally closed at Rs 6.55, around 13 per cent higher than its Thursday close. Taking the matter seriously, the BSE sought clarification from the telecom major on the report.
However, Vodafone Idea, in a statement, said that "currently there is no proposal as reported by the media that is being considered at the board."
