Liquor baron Vijay Mallya has been arrested for the 2nd time; he had defaulted on loans worth Rs 9000 crore and was already arrested once in Scotland Yard but was out on bail in just 3 hours.
Now, he has once again arrested in London under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
Mallya has always refused to be present in court or before the investigating officials in India. In March 2016, he had fled to Britain and misused all funds. He has been rejecting all accusations by investigating agencies and has claimed them as fabricated. Multiple warrants are pending against Mallya in different cases of money laundering as well as loan default.
As of now, DD (The State Broadcaster) reported that Mallya has been arrested in London, however, it is said that the arrest could be a procedural one. Reports also say that a bail order might be applicable.
As per CBI, Mallya laundered these funds to various shell companies in 6 companies. Now that he’s arrested, Twitter is filled with reactions…
Morning : Honeypreet gets arrested.
Evening : Moneypreet gets arrested.

Media can’t differentiate!
#VijayMallya In india the media can't differentiate between 'Visit' and 'Arrest'.They uses the term interchangeably.
