The ethics committee had more or less decided to expel Mr. Mallya from the parliament under money laundering charges. As a “procedural formality” his explanation was sought but Karan Singh said, “We have examined the entire issue related to Mallya’s case. The documents that we had sought from banks have also come. There was a unanimous view in the panel that he should be expelled from the House membership.” Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines has defaulted a loan amount of over 9,000 crore INR. A consortium of the lending banks is trying to recover the amount but so far the path has been slippery. Recent attempts to auction the Kingfisher House in Andheri and several Kingfisher Airlines related brand names and logos also proved unsuccessful.
