ED wants Mallya’s passport revoked

The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday approached the External Affairs Ministry seeking revocation of Vijay Mallya’s passport, as the Kingfisher Airlines’ promoter has not joined the money laundering probe despite three notices.

The Rajya Sabha MP, whose term ends on June 2, holds a diplomatic passport issued by the Delhi Regional Passport Office.

According to sources, the External Affairs Ministry has received a communication from the ED.
