Troubled business baron Vijay Mallya, who is currently holed up in Britain, has been ordered to be present in court on November 4.
The Patiala House Court in Delhi hearing a cheque bounce case directed the Ministry of External Affairs to send the non-bailable warrant to London and ensure that he is present in court on November 4.
"There is a need to take action in this regard. Everything must be done to ensure his presence in the court," the judge observed.
The court has issued so many orders, but Mallya has ignored them and refused to be present in court, the judge said. " We have to take coercive steps to ensure that Mallya is present in court.
The Delhi Intetnational Airport Ltd had filed four cases against Mallya after cheques of the Kingfisher Airlines to the tune of Rs 7.5 crore were not honoured.
The trial court had issued summons against Mallya. He then challenged it before the Delhi High Court. However, the high court refused to entertain the plea and directed him to appear before the trial court.
