NEW DELHI: Minister of State (MoS) for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday said the government will not let liquor baron Vijay Mallya live in peace and escape with the money of Indian citizens.

Naqvi told ANI, “We will get hold of Vijay Mallya, we will not let him escape like this. Anyone who has siphoned nation’s money illicitly we will not let them live in peace.”

Mallya has been in the UK since March 2. The amount owed by his company is around 9,000 crores.

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to Mallya on a plea filed by a consortium of 13 PSU banks headed by State Bank of India. The lenders had moved the apex court to prevent Mallya from leaving the country and impounding his passport even as the loan recovery procedure for Kingfisher Airlines is still on.

The Supreme Court has sought Mallya's response to the banks' plea by 30 March which is the next date of hearing.
