Vijay Mallya gets heckled by fans as he arrives at The Oval in London for the Indian cricket team vs South Africa cricket team ICC Champions Trophy match on Sunday
Fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya was heckled by cricket fans who chanted “chor, chor” (thief, thief) as he arrived to watch the India vs South Africa ICC Champions Trophy match at The Oval cricket ground in London on Sunday.
The 61-year-old chief of the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines, who has been living in self-imposed exile in Britain since last year and is facing extradition proceedings in UK courts, walked speedily past Indian fans outside the stadium.
“Chor gaya chor (there goes a thief) and chor, chor (thief, thief),” were among the chants that could be heard from the crowds.
Mallya, whose Kingfisher Airlines allegedly owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to various banks, had left India on March 2016. The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is currently working on extradition proceedings against him based on evidence provided by Indian authorities.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on Tuesday.
Last week, Mallya had caused a stir by his attendance of the India vs Pakistan match in Birmingham after which he had said on Twitter that he would be attending all India matches in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy.
“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,” he had tweeted.
