The London High Court has rejected the appeal of liquor baron Vijay Mallya against the extradition by India. So there are chances for him move the UK against the request.
India Today has discovered that Marks Summers of Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has communicated with the Central Bureau of India (CBI) that it is impossible for the UK’s Supreme Court to admit Vijay Mallya’s attraction even if he chooses to undertaking the order of the London High Court.
The sources like CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) told that the UK Supreme Court looks only after the constitutional matters and not the apex court to take up extradition case. It was also informed that when Sanjeev Chawla appealed for the same reason to being extradited to India, he does not have any chance of appealing before the UK Supreme Court.
Moreover, Mallya has the chance of filing an application before the Supreme Court in London to further delay the process of extradition to India if he files the application within the next 14 days. Even if the Supreme Court does not accept his request, then the next step he can take is to get the sign from Home Secretary in his extradition papers within 28 days.
It was also been informed by the officials that the same procedure will be followed as that in the case of extradition of bookie Sanjeev Chawla. Further, Chawla was handed over to Indian authorities at Healthrow airport on February 12,2020.Chawla was brought to Delhi and his custody was given to the Crime Branch Officials.
An FIR was filled against Mallya in Mumbai by both the CID and ED.If once the Home Secretary has signed the extradition papers then he will be brought into the city.
On Monday, a High Court in the UK located that Vijay Mallya had defrauded the Indian banks and must be extradited to India. Mallya is accused of defrauding Indian banks to the tune of over Rs 11,000 crore.
