Additional inquiries made in KFA case

The Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) is carrying out additional inquiries into the case against defunct Kingfisher Airlines (KFA), which was owned by defaulter businessman Vijay Mallya.

The white collar crime probe agency, which comes under the Corporate Affairs Ministry, in a report has flagged various violations by individuals, including Mallya, and entities related to Kingfisher Airlines.

When asked about the status of probe into the Kingfisher matter, Corporate Affairs Secretary Injeti Srinivas said that one report has been submitted.

"One report has been submitted. Some more additional inquiries are taking place," he said.

Last month, sources had said that the ministry has given its approval for the SFIO to file prosecution cases against Mallya and others in the Kingfisher Airlines matter. Specific details about the matter could not be immediately ascertained.

The SFIO had red-flagged a slew of violations of companies law by Mallya, Kingfisher Airlines and officials, including serious corporate governance lapses, sources had said.

Among others, the probe agency had recommended examining the role of some banks as well as bank officials in sanctioning credit facilities to the airline apart from action against promoter directors, they had said.
