Vijay Mallya sensational comments: Met Arun Jaitley before leaving India

Vijay Mallya sensational comments: Met Arun Jaitley before leaving India

"Since 2014, I have never given him any appointment to meet me and the question of his having met me does not arise". Mallya too admitted as much subsequently. He was of the opinion that Jaitley met Mallya a day before he left the country and this fact is "completely true".

The former attorney-general made no reference to the controversy triggered by the confirmation of an encounter between Mallya and finance minister Arun Jaitley in Parliament before the loan defaulter fled.

Judge Arbuthnot said that she watched the video evidence of the barrack at Arthur Road jail three times and that for her the most important point to consider is whether "there is a prima facie case" against Mallya.

Gandhi's press conference, his second in a fortnight with an earlier one on the Rafale deal, sought to corner both Jaitley and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Ex-umpire: US Open umpire Carlos Ramos 'thrown under bus'
The third and final penalty came as Williams continued to castigate the umpire , saying, "You stole a point from me". But Ramos has finally broken his silence regarding the backlash, speaking to Portugal's Tribuna Expresso .

Later in the evening, Gandhi reiterated on Twitter his demand for Jaitley's resignation.

Responding to a query sent by The Indian Express over Mallya's meeting with Jaitley and details of offer of settlement, Clare Montgomery, Mallya's lawyer in the extradition case in London, said: "I am not permitted under my professional rules to make any comment about this case, either on or off the record". I have clearly stated about this in each of my interview with media. There are CCTV cameras, we can all see that for proof.

"I'm ready to quit politics if proved wrong", he added. "Otherwise Mr Jaitley should quit politics", Punia said.

Neither has the BJP explicitly denied Mallya's claim, confining itself to saying "a culprit" can not be trusted and has no credibility. "Why was he silent for so long?" Now the Congress got Punia to say he heard and saw the conversation.

Bigger, pricier iPhone? Here's what Apple is expected to unveil today
Apple's events are pompous, neurotically controlled celebrations of capitalist extraction, but it's hard to deny their importance. In the second quarter, Apple dropped behind low-priced phone maker Huawei to third place in terms of unit sales.

Goyal said Mallya was a criminal, had no credibility as he was under the "glare of law" and his words could not be taken seriously. When Mallya was asked about Rahul Gandhi's statements that he had been allowed to flee, he said that he was not tipped off by anyone.

"There is a series of letters between the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) and the SBI (State Bank of India)". Manmohan Singh helped Kingfisher Airlines. "Now, when they are being exposed, they are crying foul".

Instead, the BJP asked the Congress chief to quit all posts that he holds since his family's "relations" forced banks to sanction loans to Mallya's company in 2010-11, when the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was ruling at the Centre.

The extradition trial, which opened at the London court on December 4 previous year, is aimed at laying out a prima facie case of fraud against Vijay Mallya.
