Vijay Mallya is wanted in India over alleged non-payment of Kingfisher Airlines dues to banks
The ruling on whether fugitive tycoon Vijay Mallya can be extradited from the UK to India to face fraud charges will be given on December 10, England’s Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot said today.
The prosecution said the 62-year-old businessman has no intention of honouring the guarantees he had given while taking loans for his now defunct Kingfisher Airlines.
The judge said the most important point for her to consider is the prima facie case, which could mean the court may not give much weightage to other related matters.
“The prosecution has argued their case. It’s now for judges to decide,” Vijay Mallya told reporters outside the court.
