The 'mysterious buyer' of the legendary sword of Tipu Sultan at an auction in London [ Images ] in September last year was liquor baron Vijay Mallya [ Images ].

"I am that mysterious buyer," Mallya told a press conference in Bangalore as he unveiled the sword taken away after the British assault on Srirangapatnam on May 4, 1799 which saw the end of the 'Tiger of Mysore.'

Mallya said he bought the majestic sword at an auction from the descendants of Major General Baird, who was presented with it through the then army commander Lt General Harris more than 200 years ago.
