With the sport now set to travel to the billionaire's native country for the Indian Grand Prix, it emerged last weekend that Mallya faced arrest there after cheques issued by his ailing airline Kingfisher bounced.

But reports on Thursday said Hyderabad International Airport withdrew the case because Kingfisher agreed to pay the debt.

Indian reports said the case involved a sum of about $2 million.

"The case has been withdrawn," a lawyer for the airport is quoted by the Press Trust of India as saying.
