Patiala House court notice to Vijay Mallya

New Delhi: The Patiala House court on Tuesday issued a notice to beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya on a plea of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), seeking to withdraw the exemption granted to him from personal appearance in a case of allegedly evading summons in connection with purported violation of the Foreign Exchange Rules.

The court has sought Mallya's response by May 20.

The ED plea also sought issuance of a non-bailable warrant against the chairman of defunct Kingfisher Airlines to secure his presence in the ongoing trial of the case.

Mallya, currently in Britain, is accused of defaulting on payment of bank loans totalling in excess of Rs 9, 000 crore.

The Centre had earlier revoked Mallya's diplomatic passport and told the Supreme Court that it would soon initiate court proceedings and approach the British Government for his extradition.

The Enforcement Directorate last month obtained a non-bailable warrant against Mallya from a Mumbai court in a money laundering case.
