Mr. Mallya should turn up before Court
Mr. Rohatgi requested that the court pass a request coordinating Mr. Mallya to show up before this Bench, with he passport in hand. “We are not after anyone’s blood.

Major portion of Mr. Mallya’s assets in abroad
According to Mr. Rohatgi, as per the information from social media, Mr. Mallya’s properties were for the most part abroad. “Just a portion is in India… possibly one-fifth,” he said. “At that point how could you have been able to you give these advances? Was there no secured resource on these credits?” asked Justice Kurian Joseph, who was on the Bench with Justice Rohinton Nariman.
Mr. Rohatgi, who showed up for the consortium of banks, answered that when the credits were without a doubt, Kingfisher Airlines was a brand at its top, with resources worth approximately thousand crores, and afterward “it smashed.” “We had a few resources [as security] for the advances propelled,” he said.

We know he would be there… no doubt.”
What Mr. Mallya said in Tweet
As an Indian MP I fully respect and will comply with the law of the land,” Mr. Mallya tweeted.
Discrediting the assertions that he was avoiding the law, Mr. Mallya shielded himself on the microblogging website, Twitter. “I am a global agent. I go to and from India much of the time. I didn’t escape from India nor am I an absconder. Waste,” he said, including that as an Indian MP, he completely regarded and would conform to the tradition that must be adhered to.
