Mallya’s extradition not possible until legal issue resolved: UK

Jun 04, 2020 21:04 IST

The UK govt said on Thursday that fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya will not be extradited anytime soon as there are legal issues involved. Mallya is currently in the United Kingdom trying to evade extradition to India. The UK high commission spokesperson said confidential legal issue needs to be resolved before Mallya’s extradition can be arranged. Mallya who founded the now-defunct Kingfisher airlines, fled to Britain in March 2016 after facing accusations of financial irregularities amounting to over ₹9,000 crore. Mallya has consistently claimed that the charges he faces are baseless and the Centre refused to take him up on his offer to clear his loans.
