New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to answer why Vijay Mallya, the founder of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines (KFA), was allowed to leave the country.

Taking to microblogging website Twitter, the Aam Aadmi Party leader said:

Former liquor baron Vijay Mallya's "fleeing" from India has triggered a spat in Parliament too. The flamboyant tycoon has, however, insisted that he had not fled the country.

 

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Mallya to appear before the agency on March 18 for questioning in the ongoing probe into a money-laundering case.

 

Mallya left the country six days before a group of creditor-banks led by the State Bank of India on March 08 moved the Supreme Court to restrain him from leaving India.
