Vijay Mallya has rejected any links between his proposed settlement offer to banks or an upcoming court verdict on his extradition and that of Christian Michel, the alleged middleman agent in the AgustaWestland chopper deal, who was brought back to India on Tuesday.
In his tweet, Mallya has appealed to banks to accept his offer to take back the principal loan amount he owes them and wants to end the narrative of him having "stolen" money from various lenders.
"Respectfully to all commentators, I cannot understand how my extradition decision or the recent extradition from Dubai and my settlement offer are linked in any way. Wherever I am physically, my appeal is "Please take the money". I want to stop the narrative that I stole money," Vijay Mallya tweeted.
Vijay Mallya on Wednesday in a series of tweets offered to “repay 100% of the principal amount” to the banks he had taken the loans from to keep his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines afloat despite high jet fuel prices.
