Court: Attach Mallya’s assets in Bengaluru
New Delhi: A Delhi court today ordered attachment of liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s properties in Bengaluru in a case relating to FERA violations.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat issued fresh directions after the Bengaluru police, through Enforcement Directorate (ED), sought more time to execute its earlier order. Special public prosecutor NK Matta and advocate Samvedna Verma, representing the ED, told the court that the process to attach the properties was on and due to lack of sufficient time, could not be completed in time. Mallya was declared a proclaimed offender by the court on January 4 for evading summons. — PTI
