New Delhi: As many as 53 people -- including beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya -- booked under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act by the ED are absconding, the government said today.

However, the Ministry of External Affairs "has not received any request" from the Enforcement Directorate or the Ministry of Home Affairs for the extradition of these people under the PMLA, VK Singh, the Minister of State in the MEA, said in a written response to a question in the Rajya Sabha.
