New Delhi: Liquor baron Vijay Mallya has submitted before the Delhi's Patiala House Court that he wants to return to India.
His counsel told Delhi’s Patiala House Court that he (Vijay Mallya) wants to return to India but can't come due to revocation of Passport.
"He (Mallya) has clear intention to cooperate but it has become impossible to travel back to the country," Vijay Mallya's counsel told the court.
Mallya’s passport was revoked by the government in March this year.
Vikas Swarup had tweeted: “Having considered the replies filed by Shri Vijay Mallya to the show cause notice, facts brought by Enforcement Directorate, and Non Bailable Warrant under the PMLA Act, 2002 issued by Special Judge Mumbai, the MEA revoked the passport of Shri Vijay Mallya under Section 10(3) (c) and 10(3) (h) of the Passports Act, 1967.”
Last week, the Enforcement Directorate had attached the assets, properties, and shares of Mallya, worth Rs 6,630 crore.
