He goes on to say that he is shocked to see Sunday Guardian's claim that he exchanged mails with them from his protonmail account. "Have never heard of protonmail before. Never ever had nor do I have a protonmail e-mail account. As I said earlier I have never ever heard of protonmail," Mallya said.

Meanwhile, The Guardian on Sunday, March 13 quoted Mallya saying: "But I'm not sure I'll get a fair chance to present my side. I've already been branded a criminal. I do not feel the time is right.

"I feel passions are high. People need to think rationally. They need to understand that business, whether large or small, has risks involved.

"I've seen the highest to the lowest points in this matter. But I hope that I return one day. India has given me everything. It made me Vijay Mallya."

Meanwhile, five more non bailable warrants were issued by 11th Magistrate Court Erramanzil judge Ranjoji in Monday against Mallya and KFA CFO.
