“The discussion is going on between Singtel and Mittal. Singtel is looking to sell 2-4 per cent stake in Bharti Airtel to Mr Mittal,” a source who did not wish to be identified told PTI.

The source, however, did not disclose whether the transaction will take place in Bharti Airtel or Bharti Telecom.  An e-mail sent to Bharti Airtel seeking comments did not elicit any response.
