SUPREME COURT DEMANDED PRESENCE OF LIQUOR BARON VIJAY MALLYA IN CONNECTION WITH A CONTEMPT CASE FILED AGAINST HIM:

The Supreme Court on Friday demanded the presence of liquor baron Vijay Mallya in connection with a contempt case filed against him, insisting that no proceedings can go ahead without him.  New Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for Centre, told the apex court that extradition proceedings are being conducted in a British court and would most likely end by December 4. During the hearing, Venugopal told the division bench that extradition proceedings of Mallya has already started, to which Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel asked for submission of a status report. In the last hearing, the apex court had convicted Mallya for contempt of court and summoned him to personally appear on July 10. Subsequently, the hearing was adjourned till July 14. The apex court was hearing a plea by a consortium of banks, which moved the apex court after Mallya received loan of $40 million from a British firm, Diageo Plc, in February 2016, and allegedly transferred the money to his children, instead of repaying the loans that he owes to the banks. The absconding businessman was arrested by the Scotland Yard last month on fraud allegations, which triggered his extradition process in the British courts. However, Mallya was released on bail as he assured the court to abide by all conditions associated with extradition proceedings, including surrendering his passport. On February 8, India had given a formal extradition request for Mallya through a note verbale (verbal note). India had given a formal extradition request for Mallya as per the extradition treaty between India and the United Kingdom through a note verbale, a diplomatic communication. The Rediff.com : 14th.
