With Property Worth Over Rs 13,000 Crore Attached, Vijay Mallya Asks ‘How Far Will It Go?’
Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya on Friday claimed that his group's properties worth over Rs 13,000 crore were attached, more than the “claimed” Rs 9,000 crore that he "ran away with" asking where is justice and how far will it go.
Mallya, who intends to appeal against a UK court's extradition verdict, took to microblogging site Twitter to defend his stance.
"Yet the narrative is that I ran away with the claimed amount of (Rs) 9000 crore causing loss to the public sector banks. Where is Justice or fair play?," he asked.
Last year in December, Westminster Magistrates' Court Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot had ruled in favour of extradition of Mallya, who is wanted in India for alleged fraud and money laundering charges amounting to an estimated Rs 9,000 crore.
Later on, he had stated that he intends to file an application to appeal against the British court's verdict.
