People are interested to know more about the mysterious girl, Laila Mahmood. Her real identity has already been revealed. She is the step daughter of business tycoon, Vijay Mallya. Vijay Mallya is the owner of one of the IPL franchises, Royal Challenger Bangalore. However, Laila Mahmood has come in the centre of media attention not for her father. She has caught the media attention to be associated with IPL chief, Lalit Modi, in a very negative way. Income tax offices are now investigating about him.
Vijay Mallya was asked by press and TV media about the recent incident. However, he said that he knows nothing about his step daughter being mysterious woman. In CCTV video footage, she was found coming out from IPL chief Lalit Modi's office before the income tax officials visited it for a search on Thursday.
According to the income tax department, Mallya's daughter is suspected to work for Modi. Vijay Mallya also said the same thing. He said:
'My step daughter Laila Mahmood works for Lalit Modi. I have no knowledge whatsoever of her involvement in the income tax questioning. I called Lalit Modi and he confirmed that she has given a statement to income tax department.'
When Laila Mahmood exited from Lalit Modi’s office in Mumbai, she was appearing to carry a laptop and some documents.
