New Delhi: Liquor baron Vijay Mallya has left the country, now reportedly in London, but it seems he is very active on Twitter.

His official account on Thursday retweeted,"Now is a good time to get ready for the game."

The tweet was originally posted by beer brand Heineken. And, retweet was done by Vijay Mallya's official and verified Twitter handle (@TheVijayMallya).

Mallya, who is facing legal proceedings for allegedly defaulting loans of over Rs 9,000 crores from various banks, has left the country a week back, government had on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court.

"I spoke to the CBI little while ago and it told me that on March 2 he (Mallya) left the country," Attorney General(AG) Mukul Rohatgi told the bench comprising Justices Kurian Joseph and R F Nariman.

Since the court was informed that Mallya has already left the country, probably to UK, the bench allowed the plea of AG that the notice to him can be served through his official Rajya Sabha Email ID, Indian High Commission at London and also through counsel representing him before various high courts, Debt Recovery Tribunal and also through his Company.

During the brief hearing, the AG said that amount of more than Rs 9,000 crore was due to various banks and on one or the other pretext Mallya avoided to settle them.
