BSNL-Softlayer issue

Seems like BSNL-NIB (AS9829) routing with Softlayer’s Singapore datacenter (AS36351) is messed up.
Example route between BSNL consumer connection (from Haryana, India) to Softlayer hosted site dot19.com

Messed up routing tables of BSNL or lack of co-ordination between Tata Comm & Softlayer?
