New Delhi: When United Kingdom refused to send liquor baron- Vijay Mallya back to India, even after there is a non- bailable warrant against him and also when his passport is suspended by the Indian authority, now the Enforcement Directorate has moved to Interpol for issuing a Red Corner Notice against the businessman- Mallya and asked for stop him from any travel outside the United Kingdom.

Now, after such process, there would be a favourable development in the case of Vijay Mallya, and everyone is now to seen interestingly that whether Interpol will issue such Red Corner Notice against liquor baron- Mallya or not. For basing its requirement, the Enforcement Directorate has presented evidences. However, in the response to the similar matter, the Interpol agency has earlier rejected, in last year, a similar request for businessman- Lalit Modi.
In this case, the businessman- Vijay Mallya has fled away to London in the month of March, and earlier thereto he is involved in the loan fraud case of about rupees Nine hundred crores of rupees by the IDBI band. Also there is another loan default case is pending before the case. Thereafter, the Enforcement Directorate issued about three summons against Mallya to appear in the investigation proceedings, however, Mallya did not respondent to the summons perfectly, and thereafter, his passport was suspended by the Indian authority.
Also, before few days, the Indian External Affairs Ministry issued request to the United Kingdom and asked for deportation of the Mallya from their country, however, UK respondent in negative and denied the claim of India. And now India is seeking the help from the Interpol, which is really very hopeful from this time.
