In a series of tweets, he even went ahead and slammed the media and said: "As an Indian MP I fully respect and will comply with the law of the land. Our judicial system is sound and respected. But no trial by media."

He goes on to say, "Let media bosses not forget help, favours, accommodation that I have provided over several years which are documented. Now lies to gain TRP ?"

Mallya says that the media trial escalates issues where the truth and facts are burnt to ashes. In another tweet he says. "News reports that I must declare my assets. Does that mean that Banks did not know my assets or look at my Parliamentary disclosures ?"

"Once a media witch hunt starts it escalates into a raging fire where truth and facts are burnt to ashes," he said.

Meanwhile, the Congress today hit out at the government and said, "When he had so many cases against him then why was Vijay Mallya allowed to flee the country?"
