New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday issued a non-bailable warrant against liquor baron Vijay Mallya for allegedly evading summons in a case of FERA violation. The court noted that "he has scant regard for the law of the land and has no intention to return to India."
"Mallya's claim that he wants to return to India but his passport has been revoked was malafide and abuse of process," the court pointed out.
The court also issued another non-bailable warrant against Mallya in a 2012 cheque bounce case lodged by GMR-led Delhi International Airport (DIAL), which operates the capital's Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).
The DIAL had moved the Patiala House Court after three cheques, each for Rs 7.5 crore, issued by Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines were not honoured.
Earlier on October 25, the Supreme Court slammed Mallya for not making full disclosure of his overseas properties, which asked him to furnish complete details of his assets abroad within a month.
