New Delhi, July 29 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday dismissed liquor baron Vijay Mallya's plea challenging summons issued in cheque-bouncing cases. Mallya had challenged summons by a trial court in cheque-bouncing cases by Delhi airport operator DIAL. Mallya was not involved in day-to-day affairs of Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) and cannot be held liable in several cheque-bouncing cases filed against him by Delhi airport operator DIAL, his counsel had told the Delhi High Court on July 15. The trial court had summoned the business tycoon as accused following a complaint by Delhi International Airport Ltd, which operates the capital's IGI Airport, claiming that a cheque for Rs One crore issued by KFA in February, 2012, was returned to them a month later containing the remarks 'fund insufficient'. DIAL has filed four cases in June 2012 against Mallya over KFA's cheques totalling Rs 7.5 crore not being honoured. (ANI)
