Mumbai: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday filed a fresh chargesheet against fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya and his firms on alleged charges of money laundering and duping a consortium of nationalised banks to the tune of `6,027 crore. ED is now likely to seek permission from a court to “confiscate” more than `9,000 crore worth assets of the beleaguered businessman and his firms under the recently promulgated Fugitive Economic Offenders Ordinance.

The ED has named Mallya, Kingfisher Airl-ines (KFA), UBHL (United Breweries Holdings Ltd) and others in the voluminous chargesheet.

The probe in the case was based on a CBI FIR that was registered after receiving SBI complain on behalf of the consortium of banks for causing loss of `6,027 crore to them by not keeping repayment commitments of loan taken by Mallya’s firms during 2005-2010.

According to ED sources the chargesheet, which is called as prosecution complain by the ED officers, has been submitted to the office of registrar in the Sessions court and it will be sent to the concerned court by them after due verification.
