Vijay Mallya sensational comments: Met Arun Jaitley before leaving India

"I happened to meet Mr Jaitley in Parliament and told him that I am leaving for London..." Mark Summers, representing India, said that there was a clear case against Mallya and that what Kingfisher "internally knew was radically different" to what was being told to banks regarding the company's status. "Gandhis were willing to let the economy tank but wanted to keep Kingfisher Airlines afloat".

On the last day of Vijay Mallya's extradition trial at Westminster Magistrate court in London, when it was expected that the court argument would revolve around the state of Arthur Road prison in Mumbai, where the flamboyant industrialist is expected to be lodged if extradited, Mallya turned the narrative by claiming that he had met finance minister Arun Jaitley before he left India. "Sometimes it seems the airline was not owned by Mallya, but by the Gandhi family in proxy", Patra said, adding that Rahul Gandhi, who himself is out on bail (in the National Herald case), had no right to question others on corruption. Why, the Congress president asked, didn't the finance minister inform the Central Bureau of Investigation or the Enforcement Directorate?

Jaitley's clarification that he didn't meet Mallya officially and snubbed his settlement offer isn't enough. "I met him in Parliament and told him I am going to London", claimed Mallya.

Dismissing the claims made by him, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, in a Facebook post, said, "The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect the truth".

In London, talking to reporters, Mallya said the media should question the banks why they are not supporting him in his efforts to repay. On 3rd March, we heard from media that he fled the country on 2nd March, 2016... Punia's charge contradicts that of Jaitley who on Wednesday claimed he snubbed Mallya and did not engage in a conversation with him.

Swamy in his tweet, back then, had asked that how could Mallya escape the country despite a Look Out Notice (LON) against him.

"The fundamental point is how he got away despite "lookout notices"?"

Terming Mallya's offer to settle overdue loans of more than Rs 9,000 crore to his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines as "bluff offers", Jaitley said he did not even take the papers the liquor baron was carrying during that brief encounter. Mallya, in a statement, leaves a hint that he would want to move to United Kingdom "to be closer to his family" and is still in dialogues with banks for a One Time Settlement. Under UK rules related to extradition, the judge does not need to establish criminality of the person sought, but has to decide on the basis of evidence presented whether there is a prima facie case to answer in the requesting country. Judge Emma Arbuthnot said she had seen the video three times and did not direct court officials to show it. "Chowkidaar nahin, Bhagidaar hai (Not a watchman, but a partner)", he tweeted in Hindi.
