As the extradition hearing of business tycoon Vijay Mallya begins at the Westminster Magistrate court in London, on Tuesday, Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh said Mallya would be brought back to India as soon as the law permits it. Mallya is wanted for defaulting on loans taken from a consortium of public banks. Singh, speaking to ANI, said the documents in the possession of Enforcement Directorate authorities have been sent to the UK and as soon as their law would permit, Mallya would be brought back.

“Extradition not as simple as we think. Documents by ED have been sent to UK. As soon as their law permits, we will bring him back,” V K Singh said.

Mallya is wanted in India for defaulting on Rs 9,000 crore that he has taken from various banks. A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officials have also been dispatched to London, where they met with  CPS lawyers and updated them with necessary details and documents regarding the case.

Last Sunday, Mallya had made a public appearance, at Oval, to watch the India-South Africa cricket match at Edgbaston. Mallya was booed by Indians present outside the stadium who chanted ‘chor-chor’ at him.

    Whom are you fooling Mr. Singh? Law will never ever permit to bring him back to India. UPA Government allowed him to borrow loan from the banks and your government allowed him to leave the country.

            a commendable effort on the part of the indian govt but sadly englands laws have become liberal and too politically correct in the last 19-20 years thanks to people like labours tony blair and his human rights laws which were carried on by political torie lightweights like camoron and mad cow may who just cost us an election with her egotistical posturing.

              British democracy is far mature, liberal and tolerant. Unlike in India it is the law of land that prevails there.There are no cow vigilantes or Bajrang Dal who are above laws there and can thrash or kill any body openly. It is a civilized society. If their law permits, they will extradite Mallya. They would not change their laws to suit India.

                Mallya case will meet the same fate as the Nadeem case where both -UK courts and Indian courts have dedeclared Nadeem innocent. Politicians were paid by crook Mallya and are making a noise only for public consumption. Besides Mallya is a close pal of finance minister Arun Jaitley.
