Super relaxed Mallya spotted watching Indo-Pak match at Edgbaston; social media erupts with sarcasm
While all eyes were glued at the India-Pakistan cricket fixture at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday, something happened which invoked anger in many Indians on social media.

Mr Vijay Mallaya – the former King of Good Times – was spotted at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Sunday, quietly watching the Indo-Pak tie.

Pictures of the 61-year-old now absconding ex-liquor baron went viral on social media enraging many over how relaxedly he was watching the match without any fear of either being spotted or clicked.

With his presence at the ground on Sunday, Mallya shifted the focus of the audience from the match upon himself.

Many netizens taunted Mallya for leisurely watching the match at the expense of their hard-earned money.

Even former Cricketer and commentator Sunil Gavaskar wasn't spared and invited ire from people after he was clicked along side Mallya at the cricket ground on Sunday.

Vijay Mallya, the owner of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines has been declared a wilful defaulter by India and owes over Rs 9,000 crore to 17 Indian banks. He had fled from the country in March 2016 and is now residing in the United Kingdom. The Indian authorities have been making all efforts to bring Mallya back to India to face trial in various cases against him relating to foreign exchange violation, embezzlement of money and debt recovery.

A special court of Prevention of Money Laundering Act had declared Vijay Mallya an absconder in November 2016.
