Vijay Mallya’s Extradition Likely To Be Delayed Un
Speculation of fugitive business tycoon Vijay Mallya's extradition to India has come to a halt. The British High Commission said that Vijay Mallya cannot be sent back to India unless a ‘legal issue’ is resolved.

"Vijay Mallya last month lost his appeal against extradition and was refused permission to appeal to the United Kingdom's Supreme Court. However, there is a further legal issue that needs to be resolved before Mr Mallya's extradition can be arranged," a British High Commission spokesperson said.

"Under UK law, extradition cannot take place until it is resolved. The issue is confidential and we cannot go into details. We cannot estimate how long this issue will take to resolve. We are seeking to deal with this as quickly as possible," the spokesperson added.

Vijay Mallya fled to the UK in March 2016 after failing to pay a loan of Rs 9,000 crore and since then efforts are on to bring him to India. On Wednesday evening, there was a sudden rumour that all the formalities of Vijay Mallya's extradition to India have been completed. He is being brought to India by special plane and will be kept in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai.
