Fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is facing extradition proceedings in UK, on Saturday told social media users to “get their facts right” before calling him a “chor” (thief).

Mallya’s fierce reaction came soon after he was subjected to heavy trolling when West Indies batsman Chris Gayle posted a photo with him on Twitter.

“Great to catch up with Big Boss,” tweeted Gayle, who has been part of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore owned by Mallya.

Gayle’s tweet was met with witty responses and a flurry of memes by the Twitter users, who reminded Mallya of the fraud and money laundering charges against him.

Reacting to the tweets, Mallya told people to ask banks to take their full money back.

The 63-year-old former Kingfisher Airlines boss is wanted in India on fraud and money laundering charges amounting to an alleged Rs 9,000 crores.

He was heckled by Cricket fans and met with ‘chor hai chants’ as he attended India’s match against Australia at the Kennington Oval in London on June 9. In a video of the incident, Mallya was seen surrounded a small crowd of people pushing and shoving as cries of “chor hai (you are a thief)” grow louder. At one point, a shout of “Be a man, apologise to your country” was heard, to which Mallya’s response was inaudible.
