Despite diplomatic passport, Mallya will have to face law

Sat, Apr 16, 2016, 02:28 PM
Union Minister Muktar Abbas Naqvi on Saturday pointed out that the long arm of the law would catch up with Vijay Mallya who had taken over Rs 9000 crore loans from Indian banks and went abroad on a diplomatic passport. He would have to face the sentence, however.

Naqvi said the BJP-led NDA government was moving in the right direction in regard to Mallya.

He pointed out that the Enforcement Driectorate had so far sent three notices to Mallya to appear before it, but the Kingfisher airline chief had ignored them. As a result, Mallya's passport was suspended by the External Affairs Ministry.

The ED hd accused Mallya of deliberately avoiding a personal appearance despite the statutory requirement to do so before the investigating authority.

Referring to the suspension of the passport, Naqvi told newsmen that Mallya who had played around with poor people's savings would have to face the law. The government would give no rope to such people. He would have to face the law and there was no escape for him, just wait and see, he added.

Mallya had taken shelter in Britain on a diplomatic passport.
