‘Get your facts right,’ Vijay Mallya tells twitterati after drawing flak over Chris Gayle’s post | india news

Former Royal Challengers Bangalore cricketer Chris Gayle’s tweet with a photograph of team owner and embattled businessman Vijay Mallya triggered a firestorm on Twitter and spurred the liquor baron to advise netizens to get their facts rights before accusing him of being a thief.

“Great to catch up with Big Boss @TheVijayMallya cheers #RockStar #F1,” Gayle captioned the picture posted on Twitter.

Soon after the swashbuckling batsman posted the picture on Twitter, it began to draw flurry of barbs, quips and memes.

Riled by the posts In his defence, Mallya in a tweet said, “For all those who saw my photo with the universe boss and my dear friend @henrygayle and commented, please pause and get your facts right about my being your CHOR. Ask your Banks why they are not taking 100 percent of the money I have been offering.”

But the barbs didn’t stop,

One Twitter user took pot shot at Mallya asking, “When did you offer banks money? Why didn’t you do it earlier before Modi govt framed law to confiscate chors property? No homest person will run away. Only chors fear facing law.”.

Mallya, who flew out of India in March 2016, has been living in the United Kingdom since then and has been fighting India’s attempt to extradite him.

Earlier this month, The Royal Courts of Justice had granted permission to the embattled liquor baron to appeal against the UK Home Secretary’s order extraditing him to India to face trial in the alleged fraud and money laundering charges involving Rs 9,000 crore.
