Vijay Mallya’s personal Helicopters Auctioned?
A Delhi-based company, Choudhary Aviation, had bought two helicopters of fugitive business tycoon Vijay Mallya in an e-auction conducted by the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT-II) in Bengaluru, a company official said on Wednesday.
“Our company bought the two personal copters of Mallya for Rs. 8.75 crore at the price of Rs. 4.37 crore each in the electronic bidding conducted by the DRT in Bengaluru,” Choudhary Aviation Director Satyendra Sehrawat said.
The recovery court held the e-auction on behalf of a consortium of 17 banks which filed the case in 2013 against Mallya and his defunct Kingfisher Airlines Ltd for defaulting on loans borrowed in between 2007-2012.
