to develop Parkinson’s symptoms at an early age,000, till the time Mallya refuses to return from UK, chances for any action against him appear less Mallya is likely to have the last laugh in this battle It has been six months after Mallya whose grounded Kingfisher Airline owes Rs 9000 crore to 17 banks left the country to the UK the case hasn’t made any serious progress yet This is despite several attempts by the bank consortium the government and investigative agencies to nail Mallya to get him to repay the money and courts issuing warnings against Mallya The case is pretty much at the point where it all started in 2012 when banks classified Kingfisher loan as a non-performing asset (NPA) and cried foul on Mallya’s financial conduct Mallya has so far denied any wrongdoing On Thursday banks yet again failed to findany takers for an auction that put Kingfisher brandlogo (valued Rs 4000 crore by consultancy Grant Thornton once) and its once-famous tag-line ‘Fly the Good Times’ on the block besides some immovable assets of the grounded bird The auction itself seemed like a desperate attempt with banks putting even some of the movable assets worth a mere Rs 1370 lakh lying at the Kingfisher House up for auction including eight cars — Toyota Innova and Corolla and Honda City and Civic among others the reserve price of each car ranging from Rs 90000 to Rs 250 lakh Vijay Mallya AFP Remember this is the second failed attempt to auction Kingfisher assets by banks Early this month banks had failed to get any bidders for the 17000 square feet Kingfisher House in Mumbai The reason for the failure isn’t hard to imagine—no one wants to try their luck in a case that is in a major mess and also considering the erosion in their value leaving banks helpless in recovery What is the progress made on the investigation-front The attempts of the Narendra Modi government to deport Mallya from the UK and later to extradite him failed miserably since there wasn’t a strong case against the billionaire The cancellation of Mallya’s passport was done a bit too early giving him an excuse not to come back As a last ditch effort the Narendra Modi government is now readying to invoke a 21-year-old bilateral treaty with the United Kingdom to get him back That’s kind of unheard in cases involving well known businessmen in India at least in recent history Under the 1995 treaty– Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT)– countries can seek "transfer of persons including persons in custody for the purpose of assisting in investigations or giving evidence in proceedings" Will the government make any major headway in getting Mallya back after invoking MLAT One can hope but it is unlikely Sources in the banking sector said it is difficult to convince the UK government about the criminal offence against Mallya sufficient enough to invoke MLAT The simple reason is that a section of banks haven’t so far found any evidence of financial misappropriation or diversion by Mallya Is there any likelihood for banks to get their dues now Chances for that appear very less too A possibility for that arises only if the investigative agencies make a waterproof case to nab and bring him back to home soil Early this month the CBI filed a fresh FIR in the case and two days ago the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a fresh case against Mallya According to the banks Mallya’s total dues to banks are over Rs 9000 crore while Mallya has been claiming that the figure isn’t correct and he owes much lesser (around Rs 6000 crore) to lenders post some repayments A few months back banks had rejected Mallya’s offer to make part payment of the loan saying they aren’t convinced about the offer The less discussed problem here is that there is an interest amount getting accrued on the defaulted amount which makes the amount even bigger On the other hand the value of the underlying assets Kingfisher has pledged to banks has deteriorated making recovery even more difficult for banks The fact that even after tagging Mallya as wilful defaulter (a promote who wouldn’t pay back to banks even if he has the capacity) banks have miserably failed to make any progress on recovery which raises questions on the efficacy of the much-hyped ‘wilful defaulter tag’ in corporate loan recovery Remember Mallya isn’t the onlyone with that tag in India There are several large corporate default cases banks are battling with The Kingfisher case has set a bad example for those borrowers As it appears now with almost half a year since Mallya left the country and banks in utter helplessness in making any meaningful recovery the question arises: Has the government admitted a quiet defeat in the Mallya case Thai authorities have not ruled out any group including elements opposed to the military government for a bomb blast in Bangkok that killed 22 people but officials said the bombing did not match tactics used by insurgents in the south Eight foreigners were among those killed by the bombing at a popular shrine on Monday evening an attack that could hurt Thailand’s vital tourism industry Police teams were deployed to the blood-splattered site early on Tuesday some wearing white gloves and carrying plastic bags searching for clues "Police are not ruling out anything including (Thai) politics and the conflict of ethnic Uighurs who before this

hundreds of people have been killed prompting a crackdown by Chinese authorities Many Uighurs have traveled through Southeast Asia to Turkey Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters there were "still anti-government groups out there" but gave no further details Officials have not blamed any group for the bombing at the Erawan shrine which the government called a bid to destroy the economy No one has claimed responsibility Prayuth said the attack which took place during rush hour in the capital’s bustling commercial hub was unprecedented in Thailand Police Chief Somyot said the blast was caused by a pipe bomb National police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri said the death toll stood at 22 with 123 people wounded Three Chinese were among the dead China’s official Xinhua news agency said Two Hong Kong residents two people from Malaysia and one person from the Philippines also died officials said Scores of people were wounded including many from China and Taiwan Thailand has been riven for a decade by a sometimes violent struggle for power between political factions in Bangkok Occasional small blasts have been blamed on one side or the other Two pipe bombs exploded outside a luxury shopping mall in the same area in February but caused little damage Thai forces are also fighting a low-level Muslim insurgency in the predominantly Buddhist country’s south but those rebels have rarely launched attacks outside their heartland "This does not match with incidents in southern Thailand The type of bomb used is also not in keeping with the south" Royal Thai Army chief and deputy defense minister General Udomdej Sitabutr said in a televised interview SHRINE A TOURIST ATTRACTION The Erawan shrine on a busy corner near top hotels shopping centers offices and a hospital is a major attraction especially for visitors from East Asia including China Many Thais also worship there "The perpetrators intended to destroy the economy and tourism because the incident occurred in the heart of the tourism district" Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan told Reuters late on Monday Tourism is one of the few bright spots in an economy that is still struggling more than a year after the military seized power in May 2014 It accounts for about 10 percent of the economy and the government had been banking on a record number of visitors this year following a sharp fall in 2014 because of months of street protests and the coup The Thai baht fell to its weakest level in more than six years on Tuesday on concerns that the blast may deter visitors Thai stocks also opened down more than two percent At the scene on Monday evening lay burnt out motorcycles with rubble from the shrine’s wall and pools of blood on the street "There were bodies everywhere" said Marko Cunningham a New Zealand paramedic working with a Bangkok ambulance service who said the blast had left a two-meter-wide (6-foot) crater "Some were shredded There were legs where heads were supposed to be It was horrific" Cunningham said Authorities stepped up security checks at some major city intersections and in tourist areas In Washington the US State Department said it was too soon to tell
