Arun Jaitley denies giving appointment to Mallya
This comes after Mallya claimed in London on Wednesday that he had met the Finance Minister before leaving India. "I met the Finance Minster before I left," Mallya claimed outside London's Westminster Magistrates' Court where his extradition case is being heard. Mallya is sought by India for allegedly defaulting on bank loans to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.
