Beleaguered businessman Vijay Mallya was on Sunday spotted at the India vs Pakistan match in the Champions Trophy 2017’s game number 4 at Edgbaston. Mallya fled India amid cases of financial default to the tune of Rs 9000 crore loan filed against him. He was recently arrested by the Scotland Yard in London. However, he was released on bail within hours by a London court.

Mallya’s now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to various banks. He had fled India on March 2, 2016. The two cases filed against him include one related to the IDBI Bank case and the other related to a loan default of over Rs 6,000 crore filed over a complaint from a consortium of banks led by State Bank of India.

The Indian government has been making several efforts to bring him back but to no avail. Extraditing him from the UK involves a series of steps including a decision by the judge on whether or not a warrant of arrest is necessary. There have been several notices by agencies and courts for Mallya to appear for the hearings. He has not appeared for any of them but when he was spotted at the India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match at Edgbaston, Twitter could not stop commenting.

As soon as he was clicked, the spot the game began!

Thug life, some say!

Why bother me for my credit card bills!

Some even question “nationalist Virender Sehwag” for not catching hold of Vijay Mallya

What is the Indian government doing?

Mallya has BJP’s support?

When will the wait to bring back Vijay Mallya end?

Apart from the money that Mallya owes to the banks, he also faces an enquiry for money laundering in a case registered by the Enforcement Directorate. An FIR has already been filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the loans that Kingfisher took in an illegal way.
