Later, Vijay Mallya too backtracked, confirming the minister's version of events.

Mallya reportedly told the court the same thing during his hearing today.

Mallya first spoke about meeting Jaitley during the lunch break when he stepped out for a smoke.

Mallya, an alleged financial offender, is facing charges of bank fraud and money laundering in India, amounting to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.

CBS reporter says she felt threatened by Fager message
In November, the company fired longtime TV personality Charlie Rose over allegations of harassment. A representative for Fager said he had no further comment on Wednesday night.

Gandhi wondered that when the "absconder" had informed the finance minister about leaving the country, why did he not notify it to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or Enforcement Directorate (ED). I never gave him (Mallya) an appointment, never at my office, never at my residence. On the last day of Vijay Mallya's extradition trial at Westminster Magistrate court in London, when it was expected that the court argument would revolve around the state of Arthur Road prison in Mumbai, where the flamboyant industrialist is expected to be lodged if extradited, Mallya turned the narrative by claiming that he had met finance minister Arun Jaitley before he left India.

Mallya told media outside of court that he had met Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to settle matters before he left the country.

"The statement is factually false in as much as it does not reflect truth", he asserted. I met the finance minister before I left, repeated my offer to settle with the banks. I have clearly stated about this in each of my media interviews and TV discussions that I saw the two talking to each other. There are CCTV cameras, we can all see that for proof.

Mallya had earlier filed an application in the London Court, saying that Indian jails were overcrowded with poor hygiene conditions, as his defence for not being extradited to India. Hours later, he however backtracked and said that there was no formal meeting.

"On August 18, 2010, a company-specific letter was sent to RBI (Reserve Bank of India) and the issue was resolved on August 27".

In a series of tweets, Prasad said Mallya and Rahul Gandhi were working in "tandem" and the conspiracy was hatched during Rahul Gandhi's recent visit to London. "In October 2011, Mallya thanked Manmohan Singh and said he needed more help and subsequently RBI was forced to come to their aid again", the minister claimed.
