Official Spokesperson's response to a question on event in London attended by High Commissioner

In response to a question on event in London attended by High Commissioner, the Official Spokesperson said:

With regards to the Times Now story on Vijay Mallya at an event in London on June 16, please note that there were two clear segments - the book launch by UK Minister Jo Johnson and discussion at LSE and later a reception at the High Commission for select guests. The list of invitations for the LSE event was determined by LSE. They have written to the High Commissioner that Mallya was not on their list. They have also said that the event was advertised widely through social media and attendees were not required to register in advance. When the High Commissioner spotted Mallya in the audience he left the stage and venue immediately after making his comments and without waiting for the interactive session. Mallya was certainly not an invitee to the reception at the High Commission for which the invitations were issued by the High Commission, and was not present.
