Video: Crowd shouts ‘chor, chor’ as Vijay Mallya leaves The Oval after India-Australia cricket World Cup match

Mallya is facing the charges of money laundering, fraud, and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) violations.

Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya was in for a rude shock as he left The Oval cricket ground after the India-Australia Cricket World Cup match after India beat Australia by 36 runs. As he tried to leave the cricket ground, the crowd started shouting ‘chor, chor’ as he made his way out.

Earlier, outside the cricket stadium, as he was entering, he was asked about his extradition hearing to which he replied he was there at the stadium to watch the match. Mallya’s next hearing for extradition is scheduled for July. He is accused of defrauding Indian banks to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.

Last year, in the month of December the Westminster Magistrates’ Court had passed an order of extradition of the liquor baron. The extradition order was approved by the UK government after the UK Home Secretary signed the extradition order against Mallya in February this year. Mallya had filed an application seeking an appeal against the extradition order of the UK government in a UK High Court. However, his appeal was rejected by the High Court. After the court’s denial,  India had decided to send a special team to London to help the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in the oral hearing of Mallya’s anti-extradition appeal in the UK High Court.
