The ‘King of Good Times’ is giving bad times to the financial institutions in India like no one has ever done before. He has played the escape card quite well and flew off to United Kingdom, where he now resides even as the government back home scrambles to get him in the net.
Mallya can hoodwink authorities but it is impossible to escape hackers in this day and age. On December 9, the Kingfisher founder joined Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi as one of the victims of hacking group Legion.
This is what Legion posted after hacking his official Twitter account. (The tweets have now been taken down.)
Just in case you are interested, the dump can be found here.
Mallya’s Twitter account was hacked by the group about whom almost nothing is known. These are the same guys who just a few days ago hacked Rahul Gandhi’s twitter account and wrote some really nasty things on it.
What is surprising is that Mallya posted about the hacking even before the hacking actually started.
My account has been hacked by some one called Legion who are Tweeting now in my name. Simply ignore. Will fix this .

But Legion countered that:
Mallya owes close to Rs.7000 crores to 13 Indian banks. He fled the country for UK on March 2 this year, and remains unperturbed by all the controversy surrounding him. In the UK, Mallya has been spotted at dos with celebrities such as Mika Singh.
