Mallya extradition held up by a 'confidential legal issue'

Nov 20, 2020 08:18 IST

The extradition of fugitive business tycoon Vijay Mallya from UK to India has been held up by a "confidential legal issue", external affairs ministry said on Thursday. "No particular timeline has been indicated to us and we continue to take up this issue with UK authorities," ministry's spokesperson Anurag Srivastava was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. A British court had ordered Mallya's extradition in May but has been delayed by "secret proceedings" initiated in the country, the government told the Supreme Court last month.
