Hours after London court allowed beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya to appeal against his extradition on Tuesday, he took to Twitter and said that 'God is great'.
In his tweet, Mallya said that "justice prevails" after Division Bench of the London Court allowed his application to appeal against his extradition to India. He further added that he always said the "charges were false".
In another tweet, Mallya once again repeated his "offer" to pay back the Banks that lent money to Kingfisher Airlines in full. Pleading the banks to take back the money, desperate Vijay Mallya said that he also wants to "pay employees and other creditors and move on in life".
Vijay Mallya was on Tuesday permitted to file an appeal against the UK Home Secretary's order to extradite him to India to face trial in alleged fraud and money laundering charges involving Rs 9,000 crore.
A two-member bench of Justices George Leggatt and Andrew Popplewell of the Administrative Court division of the Royal Courts of Justice granted him permission to appeal against the order signed off by Home Secretary Sajid Javid.
Meanwhile, Vijay Mallya has continued to make a series of interventions on social media to offer 100 per cent payback to state-owned Indian banks to cover his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines' debt. He remains on bail on an extradition warrant executed by Scotland Yard in April 2017, involving a bail bond worth 650,000 pounds and other restrictions on his travel.
