Vijay Mallya appears before UK Court in extradition case
London: Embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya was produced before London’s Westminster Magistrates Court for hearing in connection with extradition case against him, on Friday.
Mallya is facing a trail in a UK Court, to rule if he can be extradited to India to face charges for financial irregularities involving a total amount of Rs 9,000 crores, as well as money laundering cases.
Earlier in January, the Court extended the bail of liquor baron Vijay Mallya to April 2 in connection with the case.
In April last year, Mallya was arrested by Scotland Yard on an extradition warrant. He is out on bail on a bond worth 650,000 pounds.
Apart from this case, the High Court of London on February 12 ordered Mallya to pay an estimated USD 90 million to a Singapore-based aircraft leasing company in claims.
The case involves a number of aircraft leased by Vijay Mallya’s now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines from BOC Aviation in 2014.
