Delhi Court to hear FERA violation case against Vijay Mallya on January 4

A Delhi court will hear on January 4 the issue of whether to declare fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya a proclaimed offender (PO) for allegedly evading summonses in a FERA violation case.

The matter could not be heard today by the court due to the absence of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Shehrawat, who had initiated the process to declare him a PO after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) informed it that his presence could not be ensured.

ED’s Special Public Prosecutor NK Matta had on the last date of hearing submitted that it could not ensure the liquor baron’s presence despite summonses being sent to his office and residences and the publication of the notice seeking his appearance in the matter in newspapers.The ED, on January 4, is likely to press for declaring Mallya a PO since the court has already given him the last opportunity to appear in the case.
