The Indian government is all set to convey the UK government that Indian jails are safe for Vijay Mallya wouldn’t face any threat here.
Vijay Mallya, the liquor baron, and fugitive, who owes Indian banks over Rs 9,000 crore, fled India last year in March and has been residing in Britain, since then. As he wanted by the Indian government in the cheating case, Mallya has come up with a new excuse to evade extradition by the Indian authorities.
Vijay Mallya said that the Indian jails are not good enough and not up to the International standards and hence he cannot return to India.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will convey the Indian government’s assurance to Westminister Magistrates’ Court in London.
The extradition proceedings will begin from December 4th, this year by the Westminster Magistrates’ Court and a reply by India would be filed in the next few days.
The British court would be assured that the prisoner irrespective of convicted or under trial would get high security at Indian Jails.
Both India and the UK have an extradition treaty, signed in 1992. But till date, only one extradition has taken place under the arrangement. Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel was sent to India last October to face trial for his connections with the Godhra riots in 2002. However, unlike Mallya, Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel had submitted to the extradition order without legal challenge.
