Vijay Mallya wishes Sachin Pilot, Jyotiraditya Scindia for poll wins

London, Dec 13 (IBNS): Tainted liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who a UK ruled to be extradited to India, wished Congress leaders Sachin Pilot and Jyotiraditya Scindia for their roles in the party's wins in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, respectively.

Mallya is a former Rajya Sabha MP.

"Young Champions @SachinPilot and @JM_Scindia Many congratulations," he tweeted.

A court in London on Monday decided that fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya will be extradited to India to face investigations into fraud cases against him.

Mallya, the owner of the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines who now lives in the UK, fled India in March 2016. He owes around Rs. 9,000 crore to banks and faces trial on different counts ranging from defaulting of loans and money syphoning.

India's finance minister Arun Jaitley tweeted: "Great Day for India.  No one who cheats India will go scot free. The  Judgement of UK’s  Court is welcome.  An offender benefited during the UPA. The NDA brings him to book."
