Mallya was seen in his trademark white coat attire and later with commentator and Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar.

Vijay Mallya, the absconding businessman wanted in India for loan defaults case, were surprisingly found among the many VIPs gathered to cheer for Sunday’s India-Pakistan cricket match of ICC Champions Trophy in Birmingham.  The former liquor baron, who is currently out on bail, was spotted in VIP stand enjoying the match at Edgbaston.

 The picture of Mallya, owner of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines, was surfaced and widely shared on Twitter. He was seen in his trademark white coat attire and later with commentator and Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar. The absconding millionnaire reportedly had the Champions Trophy lanyards – a stadium pass as well as pitch pass.

The liquor baron, former owner of the IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore, left the country in March 2016 after he was named in the CBI charge sheet for unpaid loans to IDBI Bank.   He owes Indian banks Rs 9000 crore (along with interest) in cases related to embezzlement, debt recovery and foreign exchange transgression.

The Scotland Yard on April 18 had arrested Mallya and produced him before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court. He was granted conditional bail pending deposit of £650,000 before his release from custody. He will be appearing in front of the British court on May 17.
