Vijay Mallya was declared ‘bankrupt’ by UK Court

A UK court on Monday declared fugitive Indian businessman Vijay Mallya, the chairman of now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines, as “bankrupt”.
The UK court order comes as a massive boost for the consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India (SBI) to initiate freezing of assets owned by Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines, both in India and abroad, to repay its debt.
Mallya is wanted in India for Rs 9,000 crore loan defraud.
“As at 15.42 (UK time), I adjudicate Dr. Mallya bankrupt,” Chief Insolvencies and Companies Court Judge Michael Briggs said during a virtual hearing of the Chancery Division of the London High Court.
The consortium of banks led by SBI had argued for the bankruptcy order to be granted in their favor.
The Indian banks were represented by the law firm TLT LLP and barrister Marcia Shekerdemian.
Mallya is currently out on bail in the UK while a “confidential” legal matter, believed to be related to an asylum application, is being resolved in connection with the unrelated extradition proceedings.
