Exclusive Images Of Vijay Mallya’s Cell In Arthur Jail

In the wake of the controversy surrounding liquor baron Vijay Mallya claiming to have met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley before fleeing to London, the Congress on Thursday accused Jaitley of striking a deal with Mallya and asked him to resign.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted: "PM Modi meets Neerav Modi before he flees the country". Although Jaitley was quick to release a statement saying the meeting with Mallya was unscheduled and he advised him to meet the banks, the sensational claim raises a larger question that if a senior cabinet minister knew that Mallya was going to fly away to London, could the government have done more to keep him in the country? What transpired in these meetings?

The 62-year-old former Kingfisher Airline boss' defence team, led by Clare Montgomery, opened the day by branding the government of India's evidence presented in the case as "utterly unfounded".

"I left India because I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva".

Jaitley, in his long post, said that since 'he (Vijay Mallya) was a Rajya Sabha member and he occasionally attended the House, he misused that privilege on one occasion while I was walking walking out the house to go my room'.

Senior Congress leader P.L. Punia said on March 1, 2016, when he was in the Central Hall of Parliament, he had seen Mr. Jaitley and Mr. Mallya talking "discretely". "I hope the honourable judges will consider it favourably; everybody gets paid off and I guess that's the primary objective", said Mallya, who is fighting extradition to India on charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crores.

Sources told PTI that Sharif, Maryam and Safdar are being released on parole to attend the funeral. Nawaz Sharif is now serving his 10-year jail term after he was convicted in a corruption case.

Jaitley, however, took to Facebook to dismiss Mallya's claims as being "factually false".

Further alleging "collusion" between Jaitley and Mallya, the Congress president demanded resignation of the Finance Minister. Clearly, Mallya was declared as a defaulter even then.

But when reporters asked Mallya about the condition of the jail after the video of his cell was presented to him by the Indian authorities, Mallya labelled it as "pretty impressive". "I did not even receive the papers that he was holding in his hand". Had the government moved the court pushing for Mallya's detention, or directed the investigators including CBI to detain him citing the seriousness of the case, or at least if the CBI hadn't changed the nature of look out notice a few months before the escape, Mallya would not have left the country. "Do we need anymore proof that this in the pocket of crony capitalists".
