London, Dec 10: A court in the UK today ordered that Vijay Mallya will be extradited. The court said in its verdict that it is not of the opinion that courts in India are there to do what politicians tell them to do.
New Delhi, Dec 10: The Westminster Magistrate’s court has delivered its verdict and has said that Vijay Mallya will be extradited. While there is ample reason to rejoice, there are still a few more legal remedies available for Mallya, which could delay the extradition a bit.
A team of the Central Bureau of Investigation will visit the United Kingdom soon where the extradition proceedings of Liquor baron and former Kingfisher boss Vijay Mallya will be held from May 17 onwards. On Tuesday, Mallya was arrested by the Scotland Yard police, but was granted bail a few hours later.
