New Delhi: Chairman of the Ethics Committee of Rajya Sabha Dr Karan Singh said that he will present his report on absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

 

Mallya, facing a case of loan default of over Rs 9,400 crore, today resigned from Rajya Sabha, a day before Ethics Committee of the Upper House was set to recommend his expulsion.

This is Mallya's second term in Rajya Sabha and it would have otherwise come to an end on July 1.

 

Ethics Panel of the Upper House, which had taken up the matter, had unanimously decided in its April 25 meeting that Mallya should no longer remain a member of the House

 

In a step closer to initiating his deportation, the government had over a week ago revoked the passport of Mallya, who is believed to be in the UK after leaving India on March 2.
