Vijay Mallya all set to get married for the third time


New Delhi: Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya will be getting married to a former Kingfisher Airlines air-hostess Pinky Lalwani, according to reports in media.

Mallya, who had fled to the UK in March 2016, is wanted in India for Kingfisher Airlines’ default on loans worth nearly Rs 9,000 crore and some other matters, is all set to get married for the third time.

Earlier this week, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) began attaching the properties of liquaor baron Vijay Mallya, under Section 83 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Section 83 of the Criminal Procedure Code mandates attachment of the property of an absconder.

Earlier, a Delhi court had declared Mallya as a proclaimed offender for evading summons.

As per the case registered by the ED, Mallya had allegedly paid $ 200,000 to a British firm and some European countries for displaying Kingfisher logo in Formula One World Championships in London in 1996, 1997 and 1998.

The court had earlier in 2016 lifted the exemption granted to Mallya from the mandatory personal appearance in the case of evading summons in Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA)’s violation case.

The investigative agency also claimed that the money was paid without prior approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in violation of the FERA norms.
