Kingfisher owner Vijay Mallya faced heat from Delhi High Court. On Friday, Delhi court has given out a non-bailable warrant to the 60-year- old politician cum businessman for dodging court summons in a case of FERA violation.

Speaking to media, the court said that “Vijay Mallya has little regard for the law of the land and he has no intention to return to India. Mallya stated that he wants to come back to India at any cost, but his passport cancel was Mala Fide and misuse of process.”
The court had already issued a non-bailable warrant to the renowned businessman in 2012 against cheque bounce case filed by GMR-led Delhi International Airport (DIAL) which operates the Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).
Earlier, the DIAL went to Patiala House Court after three cheques, each for Rs. 75 crore, issued by Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines.

Earlier, Mallya drew disapproval from the Supreme Court for not showing full disclosure of his overseas properties.
Recently the Apex court also asked Mallya to show a detailed confession of his assets abroad. The Supreme Court is hearing a request filed by a consortium of 17 banks including SBI asking to recover Rs. 9000 crore from Vijay Mallya.
