I am Not a ‘Gatecrasher’ Says Vijay Mallya on Book Launch Row

Vijay Mallya, declared a proclaimed offender in a money laundering case, today said he was not a “gate crasher”, suggesting that he was invited to the book launch event here which was also attended by the Indian High Commissioner. Indian High Commissioner Navtej Sarna’s presence at the event on Thursday where Mallya was spotted sparked a row following which External Affairs Ministry yesterday issued a clarification that Mallya was not on the list of invitees of the event organiser. The MEA had said the High Commissioner left the stage and venue immediately after making his comments when he spotted Mallya in the audience. The event was organised by the London School of Economics. Social media was in a frenzy after it emerged that Sarna, who was one of the special guests at the event to mark the launch of socialite Suhel Seth’s new book, attended the function with Mallya in the audience.
