London: A row has erupted after reports emerged that the Indian envoy in London attended a book launch event where disgraced business tycoon Vijay Mallya was also present.

Mallya has been declared a proclaimed offender in India by a court in connection with a money laundering case. He is also wanted here over his failure to pay loans to the tune of thousands of crores.

The launch event for the book - Mantras for Success: India's Greatest CEOs Tell You How to Win - was held at the London School of Economics.

The book has been written by Indian author Suhel Seth, with journalist Sunny Sen as co-author.

The book launch was followed by a panel discussion where Indian High Commissioner to Britain Navtej Sarna was also present, as per reports.

Clarifying on the envoy's presence, Seth said it was an 'open event' which had been advertised on Twitter and 'no specific invitations were sent' for the same.

Seth added that after the Indian envoy learned about Mallya's presence at the event, he expressed displeasure and left.
