New Delhi: A Delhi court today fixed August 6 for hearing a cheque bounce case against liquor baron Vijay Mallya by Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL).

The court, which had summoned Mallya as accused today, fixed the matter for the next date after it was told by the counsel appearing for the businessman that its summoning order had been challenged before the High Court.

The trial court had summoned Mallya as accused following a complaint by DIAL, which operates the capital’s IGI Airport, claiming that a cheque for Rs one crore issued by Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) on February 22, 2012 was returned to them a month later containing remarks “fund insufficient”.
