Vijay Mallya Likely To Be Extradited To India From UK After High Court Rejects Plea
On May 14, High Court of Justice, London, rejected the application of Indian fugitive and former liquor baron, Vijay Mallya.
Absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya may soon be extradited to India from the United Kingdom, sources told Zee Media. It may be noted that on May 14, the High Court of Justice, London, UK, rejected the application of Indian fugitive and former liquor baron, Vijay Mallya, against his extradition to face trial in India. The judgement also vindicates the painstaking investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), especially since Mallya has raised various issues with regard to the admissibility of evidence, the fairness of investigation itself and extraneous consideration, with a view to divert attention from his own acts.
Incidentally, on the same day, in a tweet, Mallya had asked the Indian government to accept his offer to pay 100 per cent of his loan dues unconditionally and close the case against him. Congratulating the government for announcing the over Rs 20 lakh crore Atmanirbhar Bharat package, he said that his repeated offers to repay his dues have been ignored.
Congratulations to the Government for a Covid 19 relief package. They can print as much currency as they want BUT should a small contributor like me who offers 100% payback of State owned Bank loans be constantly ignored ? Please take my money unconditionally and close.
