India Gets Mocked in Vijay Mallya Extradition Case: UK court expressed surprise that India has not provided evidence to extradite Vijay Mallya to the country. While this is going on one side, The ‘wilful defaulter’ continues to deny the Indian government’s allegations against him. Besides, NDA government has been trying to clean the black money, corruption and Vijay Mallya is not being extradited to India.
Chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot of Westminster Magistrates’ Court said, “Are Indians normally very prompt in their responses? They have taken six months so far and we haven’t got any further forward in the past 6 weeks.” Aaron Watkins, counsel representing India, admitted in the court he needs more time to provide further evidence to extradite Mallya, who is battling a slew of cases in India over his default case involving Rs 9,000 crore worth loans to a clutch of public sector banks.
