The 13th metropolitan sessions court, Hyderabad, issued a non-bailable warrant against business tycoon Vijay Mallya and five others in a cheque bounce case.
The warrant was issued in a case filed by GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), which manages the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad.
Kingfisher had issued cheques of Rs 10.3 to GHIAL towards airport user charges which include parking, landing and navigation charges and they bounced. The case was filed in August.
The court issued the warrant after Mallya failed to appear despite summons issued to him. The respondents in the case include Kingfisher, its chairman Mallya and CEO Sanjay Agarwal.
