New Delhi: The government on Thursday said that it will get liquor baron Vijay Mallya back to India.

Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the government will not spare anyone who flees with money from the country.

 

Meanwhile, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, CPM's MB Rajesh and RJD MP Pappu Yadav have given adjournment notice in Lok Sabha on Vijay Mallya issue. BJP MP Kirit Somaiya will also raise Vijay Mallya issue in Zero hour in Lok Sabha today.

A motion for an adjournment of the business of the House for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance may be made with the consent of the Speaker.

 

Mallya, who is facing legal proceedings for allegedly defaulting loans of over Rs 9,000 crores from various banks, has left the country a week back, government yesterday informed the Supreme Court.

The bench issued notice to Mallya and sought his response within two weeks on pleas filed by a consortium of banks seeking direction for freezing his passport and his presence before the apex court.

 

Since the court was informed that Mallya has already left the country, probably to UK, the bench allowed the plea of AG that the notice to him can be served through his official Rajya Sabha Email ID, Indian High Commission at London and also through counsel representing him before various high courts, Debt Recovery Tribunal and also through his Company.

 

During the brief hearing, the AG said that amount of more than Rs 9,000 crore was due to various banks and on one or the other pretext Mallya avoided to settle them.
