Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday moved a special PMLA court in Mumbai seeking to declare liquor baron Vijay Mallya a proclaimed offender in connection with its money laundering probe against him in an alleged bank loan fraud case.
Officials had said that the agency has made a plea to the court to issue an order under Section 82 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) and term him a proclaimed offender as Mallya has “multiple” arrest warrants pending against him including a non-bailable warrant (NBW) under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
