I am not a judgment debtor: Mallya

Mallya, who resigned as an MP from Rajya Sabha this week, admitted that Kingfisher Airlines owes money to the banks but also said that he was neither a borrower or a judgement debtor. Mallya tweeted: "Agree Kingfisher Air owes money to Banks. I am neither a borrower or a judgement debtor. Why am I a defaulter inspite of a settlement offer ?"

Mallya had earlier in an interview to Financial Times said that he was in a 'forced exile' and that he is more than happy to stay safe in the UK.

He said that he wanted to settle all his dues with the banks. "I definitely would like to return to India. Right now, things are flying at me fast and furious. My passport has been revoked. I don't know what the government is going to do next," he said.

The government had revoked Mallya's passport after he left for the UK on March 2.
