ED seeks revocation of Mallya's passport

Enforcement Directorate has sought cancellation of businessman Vijay Mallya's passport in connection with its money laundering investigation in IDBI loan fraud case.

 
Agency has written to passport authority, seeking to revoke the passport of Vijay Mallya on grounds of non-cooperation.
 
Mallya has failed to appear before ED even after being summoned thrice by the agency.
 
Last week, he had informed the agency that he will be unable to depose personally citing ongoing legal proceedings going on in the Supreme Court over settlement of loans.
 
However, he had suggested his legal team could help ED in taking the probe forward.
 
ED had issued fresh summons few days back to Mallya asking him to appear on April 9 after he requested two extensions from the earlier dates of March 18 and April 2.
