[BENGALURU] Indian liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who left the country as he faced pressure from banks to repay more than US$1 billion owed by his collapsed airline, refuted charges he was an absconder and said he respected the law of the land. "I did not flee from India and neither am I an absconder",

Mr Mallya said in a tweet posted on Friday.

Mr Mallya also said that as a member of Parliament he would fully comply with the law.

The Kingfisher baron left India last week, a lawyer for the lenders told the country's top court on Thursday.
