Britain gives a clean chit to India for fugitive Vijay Mallya extradition

Britain gives a clean chit to India for fugitive Vijay Mallya extradition

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid yesterday ordered the extradition of Vijay Mallya to India, in a major blow to the embattled liquor baron. The 63-year-old businessman had lost a legal challenge against his extradition in a British court in December. In case of fraud and money laundering, Indian banks have about 9,000 crore of dues on the Mallya. His was arrested in Britain in April last year. Right now he is on bail.

Mallya had several arguments in his defense in court, but the court did not listen to him. The court said that this billionaire businessman living a life of snuff has given a “wrong description of his financial transactions” and used to lend the bank’s debt to other works. The court dismissed the allegations made by Mallya about the situation of prison in India and the conduct of investigating agencies and the courts. Although Mallya can appeal to the UK government within 14 days after approval. The UK government gives 14 days to appeal in such cases. This decision is being considered as a major achievement of India.

Hearing, after the London court’s decision, fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya said that the court’s decision has not surprised me. My lawyers are studying this decision. Only after their study I  will move forward.

Mallya, tweeted  and  attacked politicians and media for ‘constantly talking loudly’ about him “being a defaulter who has run away with PSU bank money”. “All this is false. Why don’t I get fair treatment and the same loud noise about my comprehensive settlement offer before the Karnataka High Court? Sad,” he added.

The decision of the British court is being considered as a big success for the Modi government. After extradition of Michelle from UAE to India, Mallya has also achieved great success in bringing the country into the country. Referring to Michelle’s extradition Narendra Modi also did in an election meeting. It is believed, therefore, that Mallya’s extradition will be a major issue of BJP’s campaign in the promotion of Lok Sabha elections. The news of the resignation of Governor of  Urjit Patel was being seen as a major setback for the BJP. But the news of extradition of Mallya shortly after this has definitely given him relief.

Union Minister Arun Jaitley has blamed the Opposition after getting the Mallya extradition approval from the British government. Jaitley tweeted that the Modi government has taken another step further in the way of bringing Mallya to India. On the other side, the Opposition is uniting to save the scamsters of the Saradha chitfund.
