Mallya is wanted in India for Kingfisher Airlines’ default on loans worth nearly Rs 9,000 cr
LATEST NEWS :Vijay Mallya, the embattled tycoon who is wanted in India on loan defaults to several banks, on Tuesday claimed that he has “enough evidence” to plead his case as a UK court granted him bail until December 4.
The 61-year-old former chief of erstwhile Kingfisher airlines appeared before Westminster Magistrates’ Court here for his extradition case hearing.
Chief Magistrate Emma Louise Arbuthnot granted bail to Vijay Mallya until December 4. The next hearing has been set for July 6.
“I have not eluded any court…I have enough evidence to prove my case,” Mallya told reporters outside the court.
“I don’t make statements to the media because anything I say is twisted. There is enough evidence, that will speak,” he said. “I go to cheer India in a cricket match and it becomes a media frenzy. It’s better I don’t say anything,” he added.
Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) presented the case in court on behalf of the Indian authorities.
Mallya’s defence team, which is being led by the firm Joseph Hague Aaronson LLP, said a second extradition request is expected from the Indian government.(READ MORE)
