Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Saturday issued a non-bailable warrant against Indian liqour baron Vijay Mallya in the cheque bounce case.
According to reports, the Patiala House Court has asked Vijay Mallya to be brought to the court on November 4.
The court has also asked the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to send the non-bailable warrant to Vijay Mallya as he is in London.
“Despite repeated orders Vijay Mallya hasn’t appeared in Court. Need to take coercive steps to ensure his appearance in Court,” the Patiala House Court said today.
Earlier on July 29, the Delhi High Court upheld the trial court order summoning liquor baron Vijay Mallya as an accused in several cheque-bouncing cases filed against him by Delhi airport operator DIAL.
The trial court had summoned Mallya as accused following a complaint by Delhi International Airport Ltd, which operates the capital’s IGI Airport and had claimed that a cheque for Rs one crore issued by KFA on February 22, 2012 was returned to them a month later containing remarks “fund insufficient”.
