The apex court bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman issued notice as Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the court that Mallya left the country soon after they moved applications on March 2 before Bengaluru-based Debt Recovery Tribunal to restrain Diageo from paying him $75 million.

The consortium of 17 banks led by the State Bank of India had   sought order restraining Mallya from leaving the country, his arrest and impounding of his passport.

Banks have challenged March 4 order of the Karnataka High Court not accepting their plea. The notice will be issued to him personally, through his company, through his lawyers who appeared for him in the Karnataka High Court and in DRT and through the Indian High Commission in London.
