Mallya wants to come back to India; files plea with trial court

United Breweries Chairman Vijay Mallya has submitted a plea to trial court saying that he wants to return to India. But Mallya caveats it by saying that it will be difficult to do so because his passport was revoked this year. In April 2016, Mallya’s Indian passport was revoked by the Ministry of External Affairs after numerous summons by the Enforcement Directorate failed to get him back to the country. His recent plea to come back is to comply with a summons order for a 1995 Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) violation case against him. However, the Enforcement Directorate is reportedly unimpressed by Mallya’s plea. CNCB-TV18’s Ashmit Kumar says that ED is not convinced considering Mallya’s behaviour over the last few years. The trial hearing is scheduled for October 4.
