Vijay Mallya was booed as he entered the Oval Arena for the India-South Africa match on Sunday.
London: Liquor baron Vijay Mallya was on Sunday booed by a section of Indian supporters as he entered the Oval arena to watch India's crucial encounter with South Africa in the ICC Champions Trophy.
Mallya, who is wanted in India for defaulting on bank loans worth Rs 9,000 crore, was in for some embarrassment when he, along with a companion, entered the stadium.
In a black trouser and a sky blue blazer, Mallya was entering through famous Sir Jack Hobbs Gate when a few supporters started shouting 'Chor, Chor (Thief, Thief)."
One fan, in fact, started filming his entry as another shouted "Woh dekho chor jaa raha hain andar, Chor chor (Look the thief is entering the stadium)."
Mallya for a fleeting second looked back before showing his customary non-challance while making his way to the Hospitality Box.
He was spotted at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, too, watching the India-Pakistan clash last Sunday.
The Indian government has been desperately trying for Mallya's extradition. The former UB group chief fled the country last year and has unpaid debts close to the tune of Rs 9000 crore taken as loans from various Indian banks.
A few days ago, Indian team had to leave Kohli's Charity Dinner function early to avoid having any interaction with Mallya.
In fact, skipper Kohli, who plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL, a team that used to be once owned by Mallya, also maintained a dignified distance from the tainted businessman.
It was learnt that Mallya was invited by someone who had bought a table for the event and the fugitive businessman came as his guest.
