On Friday, a Hyderabad court said it would issue non-bailable arrest warrant for Kingfisher Airline Ltd's Vijay Mallya for bounced cheques to GMR.
GMR runs Hyderabad and Delhi airports.
The twist reported here was that GMR needs to pay a few cents as a processing fee for the court to issue the warrant.
The fee wasn't submitted on Friday till office hours. The weekend arrived.
On Monday it was expected that GMR will pay the court fee. It did not with the potential now that the case of bounced cheques on Kingfisher may be scrapped by the courts.
Clearly GMR does not want to make it embarrassing for Mr. Mallya when he arrives in India.
So then, was the drama necessary?
