The Proclamation was issued by a special anti-money laundering court in Mumbai on June 14 under Section 82 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) at the request of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) which is probing his role in the Rs 9,000 crore IDBI-Kingfisher Airlines loan case.

While the agency has served the order on Mallya through official channels, it is understood that it will also publicise it in leading dailies as per procedures laid down in this regard.
