The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Sunday denied reports suggesting that their request for a Red Corner Notice (RCN) by Interpol against liquor baron Vijay Mallya was rejected.

According to sources, the Interpol was approached by the ED on May 12 seeking a global wanted notice but the global agency has raised objection on the ED’s request stating there is not enough evidence to issue a RCN against the businessman.


An RCN is issued to seek the location and arrest of wanted persons with a view to extradition or similar lawful action in a criminal case probe.

Once the said notice is issued, the Interpol seeks to arrest the person concerned in any part of the world and notifies that country to take his or her custody for further action at their end.

The Interpol is learnt to have sent back the ED’s request for a red corner notice against Mallya with queries. The Enforcement Directorate said that it will issue the rebuttal shortly.

After seeking to withdraw the exemption granted to Mallya from personal appearance in the money laundering case, the Enforcement Directorate earlier on May 12 approached the Interpol to issue a red corner notice against the absconding former United Breweries group chairman, who is also wanted by the banks for defaulting around Rs. 9,000 crore.

Earlier on May 20, a Delhi court earlier adjourned the hearing on the Enforcement Directorate’s plea, seeking to withdraw the exemption granted to Mallya from personal appearance in a case of allegedly evading summons, in connection with purported violation of the Foreign Exchange Rules.
