PepsiCo has found itself in trouble again over its advertising in India, according to local press reports.

Indian papers said PepsiCo was heading for court again over an advert that features the Indian cricket team being served drinks by a boy who seems to be about 10 years old.

The company is being accused of "encouraging child labour" in a public interest litigation brought by Uma and Bhupal Rao.

It is not long since PepsiCo found itself in the Supreme Court for defacing rocks in Himachal Pradesh with its slogans.

The court has already asked that the ads be suspended.
