Vijay Mallya - the escapee who didn't escape, apparently

Vijay
Mallya - the escapee who didn't escape, apparently

Over 13 banks including the State Bank of India approached the Supreme Court on Tuesday to prevent Vijay Mallya, once called India’s Richard Branson, from fleeing the country.

However, Mallya seems to have left a few days ago. Oops, too little too late. Catch him if you can!

This is a day after the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) restrained Mallya from blowing the Rs. 515 Crores Diageo paid him. This was in the hope he’ll pay that money to the banks. The banks wanted DRT to freeze Mallya's passport and issuance an arrest warrant to hold him back. The banks didn’t want him to leave as they claim he still owns them over Rs. 9,000 Crores.

This is after Mallya recently said he wanted to settle in London. So where did he leave for? No one knows. Mallya's spokesperson claims she has no information about his whereabouts. He was apparently only communicating through e-mail. A man vanished, like fart in the wind. Cue gif!

The petitioner banks approached the Karnataka High Court but didn’t get any interim order. They grudgingly say the HC failed to protect their interest. The list includes SBI, Bank of Baroda, Punjab National Bank, State Bank of Mysore, UCO Bank, United Bank of India, Indian Overseas Bank, Punjab and Sind Bank, Axis Bank, Bank of Baroda, Corporation Bank, Federal Bank and IDBI Bank.

Now they're trying to get him to return. #GharWapsi with a twist, eh?
