Wanted man Vijay Mallya once again made an appearance at Kennington Oval, London as he attended the India vs South Africa’s virtual quarter-final in ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017. As Mallya was entering the crowd that had come to watch the match did not refrain from taking a dig at him. They chanted ‘chor-chor’ as he was entering the premises. Despite the chants, Mallya did not respond to any of them and quietly got his ticket verified and went in.
Mallya is currently seeking refuge in the UK after he fled India with a bank loan of Rs. 9,000 crores to SBI. He recently made an appearance in a charity event as well where the whole Indian team was present. According to BCCI, skipper Virat Kohli did not invite him who is the captain of the IPL side owned by Mallya before.
