Four Non-Bailable Warrants Against Mallya in GMR Cheque Case

Vijay Mallya left country
A Hyderabad court has issued four more non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against businessman Vijay Mallya after he failed to appear in a court here in connection with alleged dishonour of cheques amounting to Rs 2 crore to GMR Hyderabad International Airport.

The 11th Special Magistrate at Erramanjil Courts complex issued the NBWs on Monday against the grounded Kingfisher Airline Chairman and another senior official of the company after they did not appear before the court. The NBWs have to be executed by 29 March.

Advocate H Sudhakar Rao, appearing for Mallya told PTI, “Four more NBWs were issued yesterday which pertain to alleged dishonour of cheques of Rs 50 lakh (each) totalling Rs 2 crore.”

GMR Hyderabad International Airport (GHIAL) which runs Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, had earlier filed petitions in the different courts seeking Mallya’s prosecution for defaulting on payments and cheating them by allegedly issuing cheques that bounced.
