United Kingdom (UK) court today has expressed its willingness to consider some evidence produced by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against liquor baron Vijay Mallya. Chief Magistrate, Emma Arbuthnot of the Westminster Magistrates’ Court, U.K., is set to consider some additional material sought from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), arguing on behalf of the Indian government, hear closing arguments, and set a timeline for a verdict in the case – which is expected by next month. This might ease the process of extradition of Mallya, who had run away to UK in 2016, in the face of charges of bank fraud worth Rs. 9,000 crore.
