A Delhi court today issued a non-bailable warrant against beleaguered businessman Vijay Mallya in a case of allegedly evading summons in a FERA violation matter and warned of initiating coercive process against him.
The court observed that he had no inclination to return and had scant regard for the law of the land.
It said coercive process has to be initiated against liquor baron Mallya as he was facing proceedings in several cases and evading appearence in those matters.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass also held that Mallya’s plea, that he wanted to return to India but was “incapacitated” to travel as his passport had been revoked by Indian authorities, was “malafide” and “abuse of the process of law”.
“He has no inclination whatsoever to come to this court and appear here… He has scant regard for the law of the land,” the court said.
