New Delhi: Amid the ongoing controversy over liquor baron Vijay Mallya, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Anil Sinha has made it clear that the investigative agency will cover all the deals and transactions carried out by Kingfisher Airlines, as per a report by Economic Times.
The report by ET quotes Sinha saying that all the people who played a part in facilitating the deals including bank officials will be examined thoroughly.
With this statement, CBI makes it clear that it will not limit its probe to just Rs 900 crore out of total Rs 7,000 crore Mallya ownes to lenders.
On Sunday, a Hyderabad court issued a non-bailable warrant against the beleaguered businessman after he failed to appear before it in a cheque dishonour case amid reports on Sunday that quoted him as having said the time is not "right" for his return to India.
The court order in the case of alleged dishonour of a Rs 50 lakh cheque to GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd came even as Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said a probe will be launched to check whether there were any anomalies in the Provident Fund(PF) contributions made by Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines for its employees when it was functioning.
