Vijay Mallya

18 April 2016

A special Mumbai court today issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against liquor baron Vijay Mallya, official sources said.

On 15 April, the Enforcement Directorate had moved the special court handling cases under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, seeking the warrant against Mallya who is currently outside India.

On at least three occasions, Mallya failed to honour ED summons for questioning in various cases pertaining to his loans of over Rs 9,000 crore and allegations of money laundering.

After he failed to appear in person on 18 March, 2 April and 9 April, he sought time till May to come to the ED, as he is abroad since 2 March.

The ED move came soon after the central government suspended Mallya’s diplomatic passport on 15 April.
