"Malhotra will be assisted by Agastya Legal LLP, New Delhi, consisting of legal professionals lead by their senior partner M R Venkatesh, practicing advocate in High Court and Supreme Court of India who also possesses educational background of a chartered accountant," Coffee Day Enterprises said in a regulatory filing.
