New Delhi :
Hyderabad Court on Sunday issued non bailable warrant against former liquor baron Vijay Mallya and Chief Financial Officer of Kingfisher Airlines A Raghunath.
The warrants were issued on March 10 by the 14th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate GS Ramesh Kumar who ordered police to produce them before the court on April 13.
Mallya, who is currently in the United Kingdom, is being sought out in India over charges of money laundering.
Meanwhile, employees of Vijay Mallya`s now defunct Kingfisher Airlines are set to file a case in the Supreme Court in order to get their dues from the company. Their case will be presented by senior lawyer MV Kini who assured that their case will be fought pro bono (for free), given their financial condition.
The government had earlier told the Supreme Court that Mallya had left India on March 2 following which the bench issued notice to him and sought his response within two weeks on pleas filed by a consortium of banks seeking direction for freezing his passport and his presence before the apex court.
