The Special Court for Economic Offences in Bangalore on Thursday ordered summons to be re-issued to Kingfisher Airlines and its chairman Vijay Mallya as the city police were unable to serve a summons order issued a month ago.

The court also issued a show-cause notice to the police for failing to serve the summons in cases filed by the I-T department against the airline for not remitting the tax deducted from employees' salaries.

The I-T department had filed three cases with the special court in 2013 in connection with the airline's failure to remit TDS for three consecutive financial years beginning 2009-10.

The department has claimed a TDS due of around R400 crore from KFA, which is disputing the quantum of the tax demand.
