Under the Passport Act 1967, a person is liable to submit specific official documents for regular national and international travels but when these documents are improper than the passport is automatically seized. The same happened with liquor baron Mallya. ED in its previous statements issued to MEA as well as Regional Passport Officer informed that (he) recently being very uncooperative in context of bank loans and forgery of huge amounts, thus entering into a criminal case which lead to suspension of passport and deportation.
On March 8, 2016 the sitting Rajya Sabha MP, Mallya flew to England, with “not providing enough detiails” and on the credits of being a Member of Parliament of India. The on duty Investigating Officer even lodged a complaint against him on the matter but was under stated due to various reasons. Now, when ED has requested MEA to seize the diplomatic passport then UK government will be alerted with the news of deportation and ask the respective government authorities to deport him in every plausible way.
Once the passport is suspended and revoked then ED is all set to issue a non bailable warrant against him and set a Interpol to go ahead with Red Corner Notice and apprehend the business tycoon wherever round the globe. The sole reason to go such extent is his forgery of 900 crores INR from IDBI Bank and rest of 90,000 crores INR from other leading banks. Apart from these he sub lined the orders of Supreme Court to seize his assets owned by family and relatives along with failing to appear in front of ED for multi forgery cases back to back three times.
Thus, the suspension of passport of Vijay Mallya by MEA and deportation of the liquor baron has finally come to a conclusion. The forgery of 90,000 crores INR from leading banks has been put to rest.
