Will Vijay Mallya be brought to India?

Embattled liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya's extradition case will return to the UK courts on Tuesday as he seeks permission to appeal against an order signed off by UK home secretary Sajid Javid for him to be extradited to India to face alleged fraud and money laundering charges amounting to Rs 9,000 crores. A two-judge bench of the Administrative Court division of the Royal Courts of Justice in London will hear the application, filed in April.

During the day-long hearing, listed before Justices George Leggatt and Andrew Popplewell, Mallya's legal team and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) – arguing on behalf of the Indian government – will go head to head to reiterate factors for and against the businessman's extradition to Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai. The judges are likely to reserve their judgment in the case and hand down their ruling in the coming weeks.
