Vijay mallya asks government to accept loan repayment offer, close case against him
Embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is fighting against his extradition to India, on Thursday asked the government to accept his offer to repay hundred percent of his loan dues and close case against him. While congratulating the Indian government over the Rs 20 lakh crore economic package, Mallya lamenated that his repeated offers to repay his dues have been ignored.
Congratulation to the government for the COVID-19 relief package they can print as much currency as they want. But should a small contributed like me who offers 100% payback of state-owned bank loans be constantly ignored? He said into the tweet.
Mallya, promoter of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines, who are wanted in India over alleged fraud and money is laundering charges amounting to estimated Rs 9000 crores added, “Please take my money unconditionally and close.”
Earlier this month, Vijay Mallya had filed an appeal in supreme court after losing an appeal in the London High Court against an extradition order to India on alleged charges of fraud and money laundering related to unrecovered loss of Kingfisher Airlines.
In the past Mallya had to tweeted that he had offered to pay hundred percent of the amount borrowed by Kingfisher Airlines to the banks but neither banks were willing to take the money nor the Enforcement Directorate was willing to release his attached assets at the behest of the bank.
