Deadline expiry

The deadline expired on October 14 and the Marans and KAL Airways waited a week before appealing in the High Court again, on Thursday.

Maran and KAL also sought directions for the appointment of an administrator/officer to take over the management of the company with the direction to apportion and pay to them the amount due till the date of actual payment, by liquidating current promoter Ajay Singh’s shares in SpiceJet.

Subsequently, SpiceJet on Thursday approached the Supreme Court seeking relief.
