Beleaguered businessman Vijay Mallya on Wednesday comes out in defense of his son, saying that Siddharth Mallya should not be ‘unnecessarily’ dragged into any controversy’.

Vijay Mallya, believed to be in London, is facing money laundering probe in over Rs 9000cr IDBI loan fraud case.

Mallya took to the micro-blogging site, twitter, and informed people that his son Siddharth doesn’t have any connection with father’s business.

“My son Sid does not deserve all this hatred and abuse. He has had nothing to do with my business. Shower abuse on me if you must but not him. Slam me if you must but not a young man,” Mallya said in a series of tweets.


Mallya and his long-grounded Kingfisher Airlines owed Rs 7,800 crore to a consortium of 17 lenders led by State Bank, which had an exposure of over Rs 1,600 crore to the now defunct airline.

Other banks, who has approached court against Mallya include Punjab National Bank and IDBI Bank (Rs 800 crore each), Bank of India (Rs 650 crore), Bank of Baroda (Rs 550 crore), Central Bank of India (Rs 410 crore).
