The aircraft in question was on the ground at MUC for less than two hours before departing for Mumbai, having done 2 x CLT and 1 x BOM rotations in the 3 preceding days

Wouldn't such a maintenance require a full cycle acceptance test before return to operation?

Well, maintenance said all tests done, but something was missed!
