Mallya convicted in a cheque bouncing case

Industrialist Vijay Mallya was convicted by a local court in a cheque bouncing case filed by GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd.  Two cases pertaining to cheque bounce were going on Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines (KAL) in the court. The court convicted Mallya and a senior official of KAL under section 138 of Negotiable Instruments Act.

Since Mallya was not present in the court the sentence was not announced and only conviction has been recorded by the court. Earlier, the court had issued a non-bailable warrant against Vijay Mallya and another senior official of Kingfisher Airlines for dishonouring of Rs.50 lakh cheque issued to GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd.

GHIAL had withdrawn a case over `bounced’ cheques against Mallya in October 2012, after KAL agreed to pay the outstanding amount due to the airport operator. However, Kingfisher made only a part of the payment and defaulted on the rest, prompting the GHIAL to approach the court.
