Sical Logistics on Thursday said it has an external debt of Rs 1,488 crore, secured by the personal guarantees of late Coffee Day Group promoter V G Siddhartha.

The Coffee Day Group company, which runs port terminals and container freight stations, was working on "strategic alternatives" to deleverage the company.

Siddhartha's body was found in the Netravati river in Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka on 31 July, a day after he went missing.
