As the United Kingdom (UK) court is hearing of the extradition case, Vijay Mallya has dragged Arun Jaitley’s name, claiming that he met India’s Finance Minister before leaving the country and even offered to settles dues. Vijay Mallya dropped the name bomb outside the court during the lunch break.
The UK court is hearing his extradition case and will be reviewing the video of Mumbai jail prepared by Indian authorities to decide whether or not to allow the extradition of the former liquor baron to India to face legal proceedings for his alleged role in money laundering.
Vijay Mallya’s defence team had argued that he should not be extradited to India as the jails here are over-crowded and have no hygiene. The Indian authorities were asked by the court to submit a step-by-step video of the Barrack 12 of Arthur Road Jail to counter Vijay Mallya’s claims.
