Non-bailable warrant issued against Vijay Mallya
More troubled times are here for the once ‘King of Good Times’ Vijay Mallya after a Hyderabad court on Sunday issued a non-bailable warrant against Vijay Mallya and Chief Financial Officer of Kingfisher Airlines A Raghunath.
The court has ordered police to produce them before it on 13 April while issuing the warrants. The warrants were issued after GMR Hyderabad International Airport filed a petition seeking Mallya’s prosecution for defaulting on payments and cheating the company by issuing cheques that bounced, reports India Today.
Mallya, who is facing legal proceedings for allegedly defaulting on loans of over Rs 9,000 crore from various banks, is currently under scanner by multiple agencies, including CBI.
