New Delhi, July 25: The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to businessman Vijay Mallya on a plea by the lenders seeking contempt proceedings against him for not making full disclosure of assets held by him, his wife and children in India and abroad. As the bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rohinton Fali riman issued notice to Mallya, who is the chairman of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that the businessman was not candid about the court order and he was accountable for the “public money” that he owed to the lenders. Rohatgi said Mallya had not disclosed US $45 million he had got from British liquor company Diageo. The petitioner — a consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India (SBI) that lent money to Kingfisher Airlines — told the court that Mallya has not complied with its April 7 order asking him to fully disclose the details of assets held by him, his wife and children.
