New Delhi, Mar. 14 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirit Somaiya on Monday has written to Reserve Bank of India seeking a forensic audit into all transactions between Mallya, United Spirits and Diageo
“I have demanded that all business organisations of Vijay Mallya to undergo a forensic audit. I have asked reserve Bank, CBI director.talk to them personally also..Vijay Mallya has created dozen of shell companies. He has misused the United Spirit also, the main source of income is United Spirit in which 4000 crores has been transferred to the foreign accounts, British Virgin Island,” Somaiya told ANI here.
Demanding foreign audit of Vijay Mallya’s all business concern, he said, “I had asked chartered accountant institute and company ministry that disciplinary action should be initiated against PWC and simultaneously the investigative agencies should take from Diageo. The Diageo have all the investigating report to accordingly start action.”
“The complex money transfer between various Mallya entities in India, United Spirits and Virgin Island entities should also be looked into”, he added.
Vijay Mallya’s troubles seem to be mounting with a magistrate court in Hyderabad issuing a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against the UB Group chairman as he failed to appear in the court for a case against a Rs 50-lakh cheque default by Kingfisher Airlines to GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd.
Responding to widespread media coverage of cases against him, Mallya tweeted: “I am being hunted down by media in UK. Sadly they did not look in the obvious place. I will not speak to media so don’t waste your efforts.”
Mallya has taken pains to defend that he would abide by India’s laws and would return to the country.
“I’m an international businessman. I travel to and from India frequently. I did not flee from India and neither am I an absconder. Rubbish,” he had tweeted last week. (ANI)
