A Delhi court on Friday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against liquor baron and founder-owner of Kingfisher Airlines Vijay Mallya for allegedly evading summons in a FERA violation case. Mallya has scant regard for the law of the land and has no intention to return to India, the court said. The court also said Mallya’s claim that he wants to return to India but his passport has been revoked was malafide and abuse of process.

The Supreme Court had earlier asked the liquor baron to appear before it in a case of allegedly evading summons in the FERA violation matter. Advocate N K Matta, appearing for the ED, also told the court that under the provisions of law, Mallya can be given travel documents, even if he has no passport. The ED counsel also opposed Mallya’s plea seeking exemption from personal appearance on the ground of lack of passport.

The Supreme Court had also last week directed Mallya to adduce details of $40 million, which he had allegedly received from British firm Diageo in February. Expressing displeasure at Mallya not coming clean on disclosure of all his assets including the money that he reportedly received from Diageo, a bench of Justices Kurian Joseph and Rohinton F Nariman asked him to furnish complete details of his assets abroad in four weeks.

Currently, Kingfisher owes over Rs 9,000 crore to 17 banks including the SBI, IDBI Bank, PNB, BoI, Bank of Baroda, United Bank of India, Central Bank, UCO Bank, Corporation Bank, Indian Overseas Bank , Federal Bank , Punjab and Sind Bank, Axis Bank among others. So far, the ED has attached Mallya’s properties worth over Rs 8,000 crore under PMLA after the agency expanded its probe into the case. On August 23, the ED registered a fresh case against Mallya and Kingfisher for loan default of Rs 6,027 cr.

    The Supreme Court - the law of court of the country is systematically biased depends with the system and the Hugh command thus Malla family or anyone in the the world break the law of the land is viable for punishment.Suppose harsh penalties by the system of lands laws.

      Vijay Mallya,, MP from Rajya Sabha has a good relation with All Political Parties.Before leaving India everyone including SBI, all agencies and Finance Ministry know about his leaving India for ever.So his coming to India is now completely ruled out.Only Paperwork will be carried out on his arrest for many more years. Narendra Modi Govt can not talk or do for his arrest..If he comes to India he may disclose everything to Public/Court which may put some political leaders in more trouble .Teri Bhi Chp Meri Bhi Chup

              bra hmin bhagoda, should be captured and brought back. Farmers/commoners are harrased even if they miss a single EMI. These janiudharis loot crores of rupees and helped to run away. Him along with whoever helped hin secure loans and run away from the country all are anti-nationals.

                Not only Mallya, even Lalit Modi, the money launderer has gone for good. Mukesh Ambani is another crook who may get exposed in future. Govt. should make some arrangement to get him extradited if he flees country. Poor Sahara Roy couldn't make great escape in time and rotting in jail.

                  Non-bailable arrest warrants are for fools and the Courts and every one know that. It was a game plan of all political parties who enjo their luxury time and was paid heavily by the liquor baron to allow him to slip out of the country and then make noise.

                        All the attachable Indian ets stand attached under PMLA. There appear to be no attachable Indian ets available for Banks to get attached. In any case, attachment is not an end in itself. It has to be followed by realisation through of the ets. Delay in being done does not seem to have been explained.lt;br/gt;If under Law foreign ets of defaulters can be attached, it needs to be explained why such attachment has not been done.lt;br/gt;Supreme Court may also decide whether ets standing in the names of family members of Vijay Mallya not having been acquired out of their income whereas they would have been acquired out of Vijay Mallya’s income and hence the ets standing in the names of Vijay Mallya’s family names are to be treated as his ‘benami’ ets
