After watching India-Pakistan match, Vijay Mallya arrived at Virat Kohli's dinner

Intend to attend all Champions Trophy games to cheer India team says Vijay Mallya

After watching India-Pakistan match at Edgbaston on Sunday, fugitive Vijay Mallya was present at Virat Kohli's Charity Ball on Monday.

In response to the media coverage, Mallya tweeted that he intends to attend all matches to cheer on India.

After making news post his appearance in India's opening clash of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 against Pakistan, Indian business tycoon Vijay Mallya has confirmed that he will attend the rest of India matches in the tournament.

Mallya is known to be a cricket lover but BCCI sources were quick to distance team and officials from his presence. But, what made headlines was the fact that "absconder" Vijay Mallya was spotted in the crowd at Edgbaston, enjoying the match.


The former owner of IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) fled to United Kingdom in March 2016 and was declared an absconder by a special Prevention of Money Laundering Act. A defiant Mallya is happy to make his presence felt and has also promised to watch India play Sri Lanka and South Africa later in the week. But normally what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests. The players were very uncomfortable.

Why not? It was a function directly connected to Virat Kohli and security could have easily requested Mallya to recuse himself since his presence was a hindrance.

He was also recently arrested by Scotland Yard, but released on bail after having been produced before the Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The CBI has two cases against him-one related to the IDBI Bank case and the other related to a loan default of over Rs. 6,000 crore filed on the basis of a complaint from a State Bank of India-led consortium.
