Patiala House Court to hear Vijay Mallya’s cheque bounce case

New Delhi [India], Nov. 4 : The Patiala House Court in Delhi will on Friday hear a case filed against liquor baron Vijay Mallya in connection with a cheque bounce case.

In August, the court asked Mallya to be present in the court on November 4. It has also asked the Ministry of External Affairs to send a non-bailable warrant to Mallya in London where he is currently staying.

GMR-led Delhi International Airport (DIAL), which operates the capital's Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), had moved the Patiala House Court after three cheques, each for Rs 7.5 crore, issued by Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines were not honoured.

The grounded airline had issued the cheques towards payment for services availed by them at the IGIA here The Delhi High Court had also refused to quash summons issued by a trial court against Mallya.

In the High Court, Mallya's counsel had argued he was not involved in day-to-day affairs of Kingfisher Airlines, and could not be held liable in cases filed related to that company.

But the court refused to quash the summons..
