ED attaches Vijay Mallya's properties under Sections 82, 83 of CrPC

New Delhi [India], Nov. 11 (ANI): The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday attached liquor baron Vijay Mallya's fresh properties having current market value of approx. Rs.1620 crores under sections 82 and 83 of the CrPC.

Mallya was declared a proclaimed offender under Section 82 of Code of the Criminal Procedure by a special court of Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

"Mallya didn't co-operate in ongoing investigation, neither presented himself nor honored its directions. Filed application before court to declare Mallya proclaimed offender and attach movable immovable properties to compel offender to join probe," says the Enforcement Directorate.

Earlier, a special PMLA court declared Mallya an 'absconder' and allowed the Enforcement Directorate to attach all his properties, including shares and debentures.

As far as foreign property of Mallya is concerned, the court has asked Enforcement Directorate to provide additional evidence of the properties.

The special court for cases under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) here had declared Mallya - who left the country in March - a proclaimed offender in June.

After such an order is issued, the person has to appear before the court within a stipulated period, but Mallya did not do that, so the Enforcement Directorate moved the court again for getting him declared an absconder. (ANI)
