A special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court on Monday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) against Vijay Mallya in the IDBI loan fraud case.
The ED had alleged on Saturday before a special court that Vijay Mallya diverted Rs 430 crore for purchase of a property abroad, from the Rs 950 crore IDBI loan for his Kingfisher Airlines and had sought a NBW against the beleaguered businessman.
The order on the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) plea for a Non Bailable Warrant (NBW) in the money laundering case involving Mallya's alleged defrauding of the IDBI was reserved till April 18 by special Judge P R Bhavake who hears cases filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Mallya, now in Britain, is charged with siphoning off a portion of money involving IDBI loan of Rs 950 crore, which he had borrowed for Kingfisher Airlines.
