Srinagar: Loan defaulter Vijay Mallya was arrested on Tuesday by Scotland Yard on an extradition warrant by India. He will be produced before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court later in the day. The Times of India reported.
British authorities have informed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) about the arrest.
India had given a formal extradition request for Mallya as per the Extradition Treaty between India and the UK on February 8.
While handing over the request, India had asserted that it has a “legitimate” case against Mallya and maintained that if an extradition request is honoured, it would show British “sensitivity towards our concerns”
