It’s an “undeniable reality” that Vijay Mallya advised Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Parliament that he became leaving for London, Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy said these days.
I learn from my sources that the Lookout Notice issued by CBI for Mallya was modified from “Block Departure” to “Report Departure” on October 24, 2015 on orders from someone in MoF. Who?

We have now two undeniable facts on the Mallya escape issue: 1. Look Out Notice was diluted on Oct 24, 2015 from “Block” to “Report” departure enabling Mallya to depart with 54 checked luggage items. 2. Mallya told FM in Central Hall of Parliament that he was leaving for London.

Every other such reality, consistent with Swamy: that a lookout note turned into “diluted on [October] 24, 2015 from ‘Block’ to ‘report’ departure, enabling Mallya to go away with fifty four checked bags objects”.
Mallya could not escape from India because of a strong Look Out Notice for him at airports. He then came to Delhi and met someone who was powerful enough to change the Notice from blocking his departure to just reporting his departure. Who was that person who dilute this LON?

Swamy stated he found out from “resources” that the lookout observe changed into downgraded at the orders of “a person” inside the Ministry of Finance.
Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi requested why Swamy turned into simply tweeting, and stated he was duty-sure to “screen and file”.

Jaitley, on his component, said Mallya used his privilege as a Rajya Sabha member and accosted him inside the hall of Parliament.
“He paced as much as trap up with me and whilst taking walks uttered a sentence that ‘i am making a proposal of agreement’,” he said. “Having been absolutely briefed about his in advance ‘bluff gives’, with out permitting him to continue with the conversation, I curtly informed him ‘there has been no factor speakme to me and he should make gives to his bankers’.”
“I did no longer even receive the papers that he turned into holding in his hand.”
PL Punia, a Congress birthday party spokesperon, said Jaitley turned into “mendacity”.
“I noticed him having [a] extended meeting in critical hall of Parliament about two days before he [Mallya] turned into allowed to escape from India,” he said.
