New Delhi:  Under attack liquor baron Vijay Mallya went abroad at least 4 times before his March 2 departure since a look-out-notice was issued against his name by CBI on October 16 to learn about his movements, as per a PTI report.

 

Sources in the central security agencies said today that CBI had issued a look-out notice on October 16, 2015, six days after searches at his official and residential premises, requesting the Bureau of Immigration(BoI) to inform it about his departure and details of destination where he might be heading.

They said Mallya travelled abroad in the last week of October and returned in November while he made two trips in first and last week of December and also a trip in January besides the recent trip reportedly to London on March 2.

 

The look out circular depends on the issuing authority and unless they ask BoI to detain a person or to stop him from boarding a plane, no action is taken.

The sources said CBI apparently did not seek to detain him or stop him from travelling abroad and every time he travelled the agency was duly informed about it.
