Bail for Kingfisher official in graft case

News posted by

A special CBI court on Thursday granted bail to an official of Kingfisher Airlines, who was arrested for allegedly misusing his office to extend favours to a senior officer of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).Forty-five-year-old Leslie Missal, assistant vice-president (Security) of the private airline, was arrested by CBI last week for allegedly arranging a stay for Manoj Malviya, additional commissioner of BCAS, in five-star hotels in Mumbai.However, after observing that the investigating officers would not need his custody any further, the court granted bail to Missal against a surety amount of Rs 25,000. While opposing the bail, CBI claimed that they were also questioning several other officials of Kingfisher and Jet Airways in the case.Earlier in May this year, CBI had registered a case against Malviya for allegedly abusing his official position as a public servant and entering into a conspiracy with private persons to take illegal gratification between May 2008 and February 2010.According to the investigating agency, Malviya's hotel bills were footed by private firms from the aviation sector like GVK, Airport Authority of India (AAI) and Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL).
