Mallya has scant regard for law, doesn't intend to return to India, says Delhi court

New Delhi: A Delhi court issued a fresh non-bailable warrant (NBW), the second one today, against Vijay Mallya, chairman of the grounded Kingfisher Airlines, in a 2012 cheque bounce case following his non-appearance.
The court said Mallya had scant regard for the law of the land and had no intention to return to India.
Metropolitan Magistrate Sumeet Anand passed the order with the direction that NBW be executed through Ministry of External Affairs as the liquor baron is reportedly in London.
The court then listed the matter for further hearing on February 4 next year.
The court, on August 6, had also issued an NBW against Mallya saying that coercive steps were required to ensure his appearance.
The court had earlier noted that despite repeated orders, Mallya did not appear in the court and it was inevitable for the state machinery to intervene and ensure his presence.
