Visakhapatnam: Former Union Minister and BJP Rajya Sabha member Y Sujana Chowdhary was stopped from boarding a flight to US at the Delhi airport on Friday.
According to information reaching here, the MP was detained by immigration officials consequent on lookout notices issued against him in a bank fraud case.
Chowdhary had defaulted payment of Rs.322 crore to Bank of India which has swelled to Rs.400 crore with interest amount and the latter had issued notice for auctioning his properties after he did not respond to demand notices for repayment. Earlier, the bank also seized his Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz cars as part of recovering the dues while the CBI conducted raids on his offices last February.
There were also petitions filed by banks from Mauritius against the MP who is also facing cases of money-laundering floating shell companies.
After he was stopped at Delhi airport, Chowdhary later approached the Telangana High Court seeking withdrawal of lookout notice, alleging that he was illegally stopped by the officials.
