After the arrest of fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya in London, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said there is no place for corruption in India and those who have looted hard earned money of poor and middle class will have to pay back.
Modi ‘s tweet clearly indicated that defaulters would not be spared. His tweet comes in a reply when a twitter user shared his though with the same intent.
Vijay Mallya, who has been declared a proclaimed offender, was arrested in London on Tuesday by Scotland Yard on India's request for his extradition on fraud charges.
Senior Indian officials described his arrest as the first salvo in the case, which will now involve a legal process in the UK to determine if Mallya can be extradited to India to face charges in Indian courts.
Indeed. There is no place for corruption in India. Those who looted the poor & middle classes will have to return what they have looted. https://t.co/sG6W9UECcp— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 18, 2017
The arrest comes weeks after Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had indicated that Mallya's extradition would feature in his talks during his visit to the UK.
The 61-year-old liquor baron, wanted in India for defaulting on loans, was arrested after he appeared at a central London police station on Tuesday morning.
