UK clears Vijay Mallya's extradition to India

The United Kingdom has cleared the extradition process of businessman Vijay Mallya to India to face fraud charges.

Mallya, who moved to Britain in March 2016, has a 14-day window to appeal to a higher court.

According to reports, the procedure could take at least 7-8 months if Mallya uses all his legal options.

Mallya, the co-owner of the Formula One motor racing team Force India, has denied any wrongdoing in the AED 4.7 billion fraud and says the case is politically motivated.
