After seeking to withdraw the exemption granted to Vijay Mallya from personal appearance in the money laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) approached the Interpol to issue a red corner notice against the absconding former UB group chairman.
ED approached Interpol on Thursday. The ED move comes after the UK government informed India that Mallya cannot be deported as per British laws.
The UK Government's response came nearly a fortnight after India made a request for the deportation of Mallya, whose Indian passport was revoked in a bid to secure his presence for investigation.
This is to mention that the Enforcement Directorate had last month obtained a non-bailable warrant against Mallya from a Mumbai court in a money laundering case. A Delhi court had earlier on Tuesday issued a notice to Mallya on the Enforcement Directorate's plea and sought his response by May 20.
Meanwhile, Mallya remained elusive to India as the United Kingdom informed the government that they cannot comply with their request to deport him, but said they are ready to consider the option of liquor baron's extradition.
