Indian business tycoon Vijay Mallya who is a fugitive now for unpaid debts worth more than 9,000 crores was seen at a match and a red-carpet event. Media and Indian Cricket team could not ignore his presence at a charity dinner hosted by skipper Virat Kohli. Indian Cricket team avoided meeting Mallya.
India is trying hard but could not succeed to extradite Mallya as he refused voluntarily to return to India to face multiple charges. He was arrested in London early this year but was granted bail.
BCCI official said that they didnot invite Mallya and said, ‘Look, Virat or his foundation never invited Mallya at the function. But normally what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests. Similarly, someone who bought a table must have invited him’, per PTI reports.
Vijay Mallya was found watching India vs Pakistan match and twitted the following message:
Wide sensational media coverage on my attendance at the IND v PAK match at Edgbaston. I intend to attend all games to cheer the India team.
