New Delhi: Liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya, absconding from India, has suffered a major setback from a UK court. He has lost in the extradition case.

Fugitive liquor businessman Vijay Mallya had filed an appeal in the UK High Court against the order to hand over India, which the court today rejected.

A two-member bench of the Royal Court of Justice Judge Stephen Irwin and Judge Elizabeth Long dismissed Mallya’s appeal in his ruling. The case was heard through video conferencing due to the ‘lockdown’ caused by the Coronavirus epidemic.

India is trying to get Vijay Mallya’s extradition. Vijay Mallya has been in London for almost five years, where extradition proceedings were against him. Nearly 9,000 crores of 13 Indian banks are owed on Mallya.

The Indian court has declared Mallya a fugitive economic offender and has also begun proceedings to seize his property in cases related to the Money Laundering Prevention Act (PMLA).
