The Air­ports Author­ity of In­dia (AAI) has moved a court in Mum­bai to de­clare busi­ness­man Vi­jay Mallya as a “pro­claimed of­fender” in the case of two bounced cheques worth over ₹100 crore for the de­funct King­fisher Air­lines.

The AAI has sought procla­ma­tion from the Mum­bai court un­der Sec­tion 82 of the Code of Crim­i­nal Pro­ce­dure, 1973 un­der which a court can de­clare per­sons pro­claimed of­fender if they are ab­scond­ing de­spite a war­rant is­sued against them.

The Mum­bai court had is­sued a non-bail­able war­rant against Mr. Mallya for not ap­pear­ing be­fore it on July 16 last year for a case re­lated to bounced cheques of over ₹100 crore.
