Mallya backtracks after saying he met Arun Jaitley before leaving India

Appearing before London court Vijay Mallya on Wednesday said he had met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to settle matters before leaving India

Rohatgi said Mallya owed more than Rs 9,000 crore to these 17 banks and had also been declared a "wilful defaulter". The judge is also expected to hear the final closing arguments in the case, after which a timeline for her ruling is likely to become clearer.

"The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect truth", he asserted.

"Yesterday, Arun Jaitley said that Vijay Mallya had formally approached him in Parliament". He was of the opinion that Jaitley met Mallya a day before he left the country and this fact is "completely true". Goyal, Prasad and Sitharaman said the letters were written to the Reserve Bank of India and State Bank of India during the UPA's rule to help Mallya. Nirmala Sitharama has termed Congress' move to demand FM Jaitley's resignation as motivated.

Vijay Mallya during a lunch break at his extradition hearing in London on Wednesday said that he met the finance minister before leaving India and offered to make a settlement.

As he headed inside the court, Mallya told reporters that he had offered a "comprehensive" settlement. I have clearly stated about this in each of my interview with media. There are CCTV cameras.

When asked to comment on Dave's assertion, then SBI chairperson Arundhati Bhattacharya told The Indian Express: "Mr Dave may say what he has to say".

But the BJP rejected Punia's claim. "Why was he silent for so long?" "Is there anything common between them (Mallya and Rahul Gandhi)?" the law minister asked.

Goyal said the fugitive businessman was a criminal under the "glare of law" and his words could not be taken seriously.

"Sometimes it seems the airline was not owned by Mallya, but by the Gandhi family in proxy", Patra said, adding that Rahul Gandhi, who himself is out on bail (in the National Herald case), had no right to question others on corruption.

Attacking Rahul Gandhi at a press meet, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Sambit Patra, showing a purported confessional statement of a hawala trader, alleged that the Congress chief had links with a shell company. The CBI comes under the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), which is a portfolio with the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). "Benefits that Gandhi family got out of Kingfisher Airlines via business class upgradation, free tickets etc are in public domain". "Now, when they are being exposed, they are crying foul". "Is the Congress keen to save Vijay Mallya who benefitted from the bank facilities during the UPA government", Prasad tweeted.

Adding another twist to the Vijay Mallya saga, a UK court today set December 10 as the date for the verdict on Vijay Mallyas's extradition from United Kingdom.
