India asked UK to Deport Vijay Mallya : Also Liquor King Vijay Mallya Resigns as MP
India aksed UK to deport Vijay Mallya. Vijay Mallya is now the owner of grounded kingfisher Airlines. Liquor king Vijay Mallya is wanted for financial mismanagement under India's anti-money-laundering law.
Vikas Swarup, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said that, “As of today [Thursday] the MEA has written to the High Commission of the United Kingdom in Delhi requesting deportation of Shri Vijay Mallya from the United Kingdom. The High Commission of India (in UK) will also issue a similar note verbale on the case. We shall pursue the matter with the United Kingdom.”
The Indian Government wants to him for face to face investigation. Mallya said to UK media that, “We have always been in dialogue with banks, saying we wish to settle. But we wish to settle at a reasonable number that we can afford and banks can justify on the basis of settlements done before. By arresting me, they are not getting any money.”
The Ministry of External Affairs cancelled Vijay Mallya's passport last week. Businessman Vijay Mallya ownes more than $1 billion to banks and creditors in India. He flew out in the first week of March. And he is not returned yet. The law enforcement authorities and banks have been demanding in court for Mallya's return.
Infact Vijay Mallya has been resigned from Rajya Sabha. UB Group chairman Vijay Mallya wrote a letter to the chairman of the Rajya Sabha Hamid Ansari. He wrote that, “Nevertheless, since I do not want my name and reputation to be further dragged in the mud, and since recent events suggest that I will not get a fair trail or justice, I am hereby resigning as a member of Rajya Sabha with immediate effect.”
“Whilst I am confident and convinced that there is no tenable basis for the so-called unanimous decision reached by the Ethics Committee, I have no faith that in the current climate prevailing in the country that I will get any justice even at the hands of my colleagues in the Ethics Committee, and hence, I no longer wish my good name to be further needlessly dragged in the mud” Mallya wrote.
Rikesh Parikh, vice-president, equities, Motilal Oswal Securities Ltd said that, “Mallya was already facing expulsion from Parliament. His membership is also due to expire. Instead of going into prolonged litigation, he must have given up his membership. This also would mean that he does not want to return to India and face more panels—sure that he does not want that kind of a scenario.”
