Lawyer refused to fight the case in Supreme Court, said - Mallya has not been in touch for a long time

Fugitive liquor businessman Vijay Mallya's troubles seem to be increasing. Actually, Vijay Mallya's lawyer has refused to fight his case. The lawyer has urged the Supreme Court to acquit Vijay Mallya's case.
The lawyer told the Supreme Court that he has not had any conversation with Vijay Mallya, the former chief of Kingfisher, for a long time. He further said that he wants to be relieved of his duties in this matter.
The Supreme Court has asked the lawyer to submit Mallya's e-mail and residential address in the court's registry within a week. Not only this, but the SC has also allowed the lawyer to start the process of withdrawing his name from Mallya's case.
The plea was filed by Mallya's counsel during the hearing of a petition filed by the former liquor baron. There was a demand to stop the confiscation of all properties owned by Mallya and his relatives. Mallya had filed a petition that no property other than Kingfisher Airlines should be attached.
The hearing comes nearly four months after the Supreme Court on July 11 sentenced Vijay Mallya to four months in a contempt case. Mallya is the primary accused in the Rs 9,000-crore bank loan default case involving Mallya's defunct Kingfisher Airlines.
In a hearing held on July 11, the Supreme Court sentenced Mallya to four months in jail and also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000. Mallya was found guilty of contempt of court in 2017. The top court had asked Mallya to deposit back $40 million, or Rs 317 crore, with 8% interest within four weeks. Not only this, but the court had also said that failing to do so, their properties would be attached.
In 2017, the SC held Mallya guilty of contempt of court in two cases. First, Mallya transferred $40 million to his children in violation of a court order. Second, Mallya had also violated the orders passed by the Karnataka High Court.
