Indian team leaves early as Mallya drops in at Kohli event

Vijay Mallya at India vs Pakistan match

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

While on one hand Indian government is trying hard to extradite Vijay Mallya from the United Kingdom, he was seen enjoying at the recently held India-Pakistan Champions Trophy match in Birmingham.

Ever since Team India landed in England to participate in the ICC Champions Trophy, fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya has made it a point to mark his presence at every big occasion.

The National cricket team including the skipper maintained a safe distance from him.

He is out on bail inEngland and was spotted at the VIP stand enjoying the marquee match at Edgbaston, cheering for Virat Kohli and Co.

While one concedes he did not gatecrash the charity dinner given by Virat Kohli's foundation in London and was a guest of one of those people who had bought a table, plain common sense indicates you should avoid being a pest. Earlier, on Sunday, Mallya had watched the India's match against Pakistan at the Edgbaston. Kohli says that he "never invited" the former Royal Challengers Bangalore owner. Kohli who is carrying the baton of fitness in the Indian team decided against extending his contract due to his fitness regime. "And nearly everyone, except our captain who was host of the event, left the scene", a senior BCCI official told DNA.

"His presence creates a very uncomfortable situation for the cricketers", said a source.

The CBI has two cases against him - one related to the IDBI Bank case and the other related to a loan default of over R6,000 crore filed on the basis of a complaint from a State Bank of India-led consortium.

The tycoon was arrested by the Scotland Yard on April 19 on an extradition warrant but was granted bail within a few hours.
