Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and U.U. Lalit will hear the matter against Vijay Mallya on 9 March
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday said that the case against UB Group chairman Vijay Mallya for defaulting on loans owed by his grounded airline Kingfisher to a consortium of banks will be heard by a new set of judges.
“This was done by the order of the Chief Justice," judges A.K. Goel and U.U. Lalit told Mallya’s lawyer C.S. Vaidyanathan when he asked why the case had been moved.
Usually, no reasons are assigned when the Chief Justice passes an order to the registry while listing cases.
