The United Kingdom Home Secretary Sajid Javid on Monday approved the extradition request by Indian authorities and signed extradition papers to bring businessman Vijay Mallya back to India. Mallya can, however, appeal in the court within 14 days.
Mallya’s legal team has confirmed that they will appeal the extradition order. Mallya can appeal to the Court of Appeal, for which he has an automatic right to do so. Should this also go against him, he could apply in the right to appeal to the Supreme Court.
