New Delhi:

Beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya in the alleged funds' diversion case related to Kingfisher Airlines has claimed innocence, saying that nothing has come out finally against him from a court.

Mallya took to Twitter to stress his point, “Till this minute, there is no final judicial determination on what KFA owes to banks and what I may owe in my personal capacity after trial,” he tweeted.

In a series of tweets, he raised the concerns over media coverage of the recent developments and said his innocence prevails till he is proven guilty by any court.

After Sebi had barred Mallya and six others from the securities market in a case related to alleged funds diversions from United Spirits, Mallya had resigned as director and chairman of USL in March 2016.

His tweets implicitly spoke of an alleged witch-hunt against him by the government.  Mallya, who is now staying in London, also scoffed at suggestions that he had fled the country in the wake of the investigations against him, saying his departure was "nothing sudden. I have been a non-resident since 1988".
