The Enforcement Directorate has written to the Ministry of External Affairs to initiate deportation proceedings against businessman Vijay Mallya.

The MEA had, on April 15, suspended the diplomatic passport of Mr. Mallya on ED's request on charges of his non-appearance despite repeated summons in the Rs.900-crore IDBI Bank bank loan money laundering case.

The ED has also got a non-bailable warrant against the businessman.

Deportation is an executive action and, therefore, quicker than the extradition route which is a more time-consuming process. In extradition proceedings, agencies have to prove their prima facie case and the accused has recourse to several defences under the mutual extradition treaty with the foreign jurisdiction concerned.
