Mumbai, Jun 17 (PTI) A special CBI court today granted bail to an official of Kingfisher Airlines, arrested for allegedly misusing his office to extend favours to a senior officer of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS). Leslie Missal (45), assistant vice-president (Security) of the private airlines, was arrested by CBI on June 11 for allegedly arranging the stay for Manoj Malviya, additional commissioner, BCAS, in five-star hotels in Mumbai. The court today granted Missal bail on a surety of Rs 25,000 after observing that his custody was not required by the investigating agency.

According to the investigating agency, Malviya''s hotel bills were footed allegedly by private firms from the aviation sector like GVK, Airports Authority of India (AAI) and Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL). CBI is also questioning several other officials of Kingfisher and Jet Airways in the case.
