CBI moves to seek info on Mallya’s properties abroad
The CBI has decided to get Letters Rogatory (LR) issued to seek details of Vijay Mallya’s properties and investments abroad as part of its probe into allegations that he diverted funds raised from government banks for Kingfisher Airlines. Sources said the LRs legal request for assistance are being prepared and the agency may move courts shortly to get them served through the foreign ministry .
Mallya has properties in several countries , including US, UK, France, Hong Kong and UK. LRs will be required for Indian agencies to gather information, which will then be admissible as evidence in court.
Considering LRs will also be crucial for any effort to get a Red Corner Notice issued by Interpol, CBI’s plans mark a clear toughening of the agency’s posture towards Mallya who has been at the centre of a widening confrontation between the government and opposition.
