Vijay Mallya’s Extradition Case Hearing in London Court Today
New Delhi: Wanted tycoon Vijay Mallya’s extradition hearing will take place on Tuesday in London’s Westminster Magistrates Court where the Crown Prosecution Service will argue the case on India’s behalf.
Mallya, whose Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to a consortium of banks, had fled India last March
In April, Mallya was arrested by Scotland Yard on fraud allegations, triggering an official extradition process in the British courts. He attended a central London police station for his arrest and was released on conditional bail a few hours later after providing a bail bond worth 650,000 pounds, assuring the court of abiding by all conditions associated with extradition proceedings, such as the surrender of his passport and a ban on him possessing any travel documents
The extradition hearing was originally scheduled for May 17, but was postponed to June 13.
Mallya has caused a stir in the recent days with his attendance at the matches played by India in the ICC Champions Trophy which is underway in England currently. At the last match against South Africa, the liquor baron was even booed by fans who shouted ‘chor, chor’ on seeing him.
Earlier, he also made an appearance at captain Virat Kohli’s charity dinner in London to raise funds for anti-human trafficking charity Justice and Care, but was reportedly given a cold shoulder by those present.
