BEIJING Nov 9 (Reuters) - China Railway Construction Corp Ltd is "shocked" by Mexico's decision to revoke a $3.75 billion high-speed rail contract from a China-led consortium, and may take legal steps to protect its rights, state news agency Xinhua cited the company as saying on Sunday.

After the contract to build the link was awarded on Monday, Mexican opposition politicians accused the government of favouring the group led by China Railway Construction, the sole bidder.

But the company said that it had respected the bidding process "from start to finish", Xinhua added.

Calls to China Railway Construction outside of normal business hours on Sunday went unanswered. (Reporting by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Jason Subler)
