Wanted Mallya appears in UK for launch of F1 car

New Delhi: Businessman Vijay Mallya, who is wanted in India for Rs 9,000 crore loan default, was today seen at an event in UK promoting a new Formula One car launched by his team Sahara Force India.

A relaxed Mallya, looking dapper in a suit, was seen with his two drivers Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon in a photograph uploaded by official Formula One website (www.formula1.com).

The new car of his F1 team was launched today at Silverstone.

Fugitive Mallya has been on the radar of the Indian agencies for a long time now and the government has been in talks with the UK government for his extradition over charges of multi-crore loan default by a consortium of Indian banks.
