SBICAP Trustee Company has sold 1.69 crore shares worth over Rs. 4.52 crore of debt-ridden Kingfisher Airlines.

Post sale, SBICAPs stake in the grounded carrier has come down to 10.10% from 12.19%, Kingfisher said in a regulatory filing on Thursday.

Promoters held 30.14% stake in Kingfisher, as per the companys December quarter shareholding pattern.

For the October-December quarter, Kingfisher reported a net loss of Rs. 822.42 crore. The airline, which has not flown for more than a year, had reported a loss of Rs. 755.17 crore in the year-ago period.

Burdened by losses and huge debts, the airline part of the group led by liquor baron Vijay Mallyas stopped flying in October 2012. Its flying licence also lapsed about two months later.

Shares of the company ended at Rs 2.44 apiece, up 0.83 per cent on the BSE Sensex on Thursday.
