“I find really amusing thing in the extradition process because ultimately the criminal fugitive Vijay Mallya will be tried in India and then the evidence collected by the investigator should be accessed on the basis of Indian law but why on the basis of foreign law”.
Vijay Mallya speaks to the media during a news conference in Mumbai November 15, 2011. But the Airlines was shut down in the year 2012.
Vijay Mallya has avoided several summon notices from Indian courts and haven’t appeared before them Intentionally.
Earlier, when New Delhi cancelled Mr Mallya’s passport and asked the United Kingdom government to deport him, British officials said he could legally stay on in London as he had a United Kingdom visa. This is the first step to deport Vijay Mallya. The UK officials have taken this request and sent to the district judge for further course of action.
UK Minister of State for Immigration, James Brokenshire, had told Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju, in February 2016 that New Delhi will also have to convince the British courts on the pending cases. He will be presented before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court. His now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to many banks. Last year, Britain extradited Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel who was wanted by India in relation to the 2002 Gujarat riots, leading to hopes for future successful extradition requests.
A team of Central Bureau Investigation will visit London soon to investigate Vijay Mallya. From lavish parties to shooting with super hot models, this ‘king of good times has done it all.
The sea-front villa, which was Mallya’s party pad, was bought by actor-businessman Sachiin Joshi for Rs73 crore.
The SBI-led consortium had reduced the reserve price of Kingfisher Villa, the plush property situated at Condolim in North Goa, by 10 per cent from Rs 81 crore quoted in the second attempt at auction of this property in December.
