President Donald Trump has issued a new travel ban that saw North Korea, Venezuela and Chad among a list of eight countries cited for poor security and lack of cooperation with US authorities.

Strengthening the case for fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya's extradition from the United Kingdom, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are reported to be preparing a charge sheet alleging the former liquor baron laundered a major chunk of the Rs 6,027-cr loan taken for the defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

Mallya, the 61-year-old chief of the erstwhile Kingfisher Airlines who owes over Rs 9,000 crore to IDBI Bank and various other Indian banks, had fled India to escape legal proceedings in connection with default on the loan repayment.

Air India chief Rajiv Bansal has said the airline has requested DGCA to take a "lenient view" on more than 400 pilots and cabin crew who have come under the scanner for skipping breath analyser test, maintaining that they never intended to violate norms.

As many as 132 pilots and 434 cabin crew of the national carrier have been found by the DGCA to have allegedly skipped the compulsory pre-and post-flight alcohol tests this year. They face the prospect of being grounded and a final decision would be taken after discussions with the civil aviation ministry.
