‘You have blood on your hands’, employees of Kingfisher Airlines write to Mallya as he owes Rs 300 crore in salary
Employees of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines are vexed and their agony has a solid reason. Apart from not giving dues to several banks, which are now after him to pay Rs 7, 000 crore, Vijay Mallya owes Rs 300 crore in salary to around 3000 employees.

Nearly 900 employees who are still employed with the Kingfisher Airlines on paper and 2000 more who left since 2015 haven’t received their salaries.

While many of the employees have changed their jobs, the ground staff, technicians and engineers are still unemployed.

Irate employees had written an open letter to Mallya. “Your heart is impure and you have blood on your hands. We have so much to tell you but you won’t have patience and time to listen all that. Please do have regret and don’t set precedents dangerous to our country and aspiring entrepreneurs,” stated the employees in the open letter.
