The application accessed by PTI seeks to immediately confiscate about Rs 12,500 crore assets of Mallya and his companies, both movable and immovable. The ED has furnished evidences in its two charge sheets, filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in the past, to make a case for seeking a fugi- tive offender tag for Mallya from the court.

As per the existing process of law under the PMLA, the ED can conﬁscate the assets only after the trial in a case ﬁnishes which usually takes many years.

"A Fugitive Economic Offender is a person against whom an arrest warrant has been issued in respect of a scheduled offence and who has left India so as to avoid criminal prosecution or being abroad, refuses to return to India to face criminal prosecution”, the government said.
