Mumbai: Grounded Airlines Jet Airways Ltd founder Naresh Goyal and his wife Anita Goyal were stopped from flying to Dubai today by the immigration authorities in Mumbai, said a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

An airport official said the aircraft was called back to the parking bay at the time of taxiing. Their baggage booked in the name of Anita Goyal was also offloaded from the aircraft, leading to about 45 minutes of delay in the flight's departure.

The couple was on board Emirates Airways flight EK 507. After the immigration authorities' decision, their baggage was also offloaded. According to sources, the couple was stopped on the basis of a look-out circular against Naresh Goyal. They left the airport around 5 pm and reportedly returned to their Mumbai residence.

"Emirates is co-operating fully with relevant authorities & we abide by the laws of various countries we operate in", an Emirates spokesperson later said in a statement.

Goyal founded Jet Airways in 1993 and was its chairman till he was asked to step down by lenders in March. Top five executives of the airline, including CEO Vinay Dube, already resigned from the airline citing "personal reasons".The company ceased operations temporarily around mid-April due to an acute liquidity crisis.
