With India pursuing the case of extradition of liquor baron Vijay Mallya, the Westminster Magistrates’ Court judge asked Indian officials to furnish videos of the Mumbai jail where Mallya might be lodged should he be extradited to India.
It need be mentioned that the judge had expressed dissatisfaction with the still photographs provided by the Indian authorities.
The snaps were of the jail premises where Mallya could be lodged.
But the judge then ordered that a video be shot and submitted within three weeks.
Judge Emma Arbuthnot said a video of the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, where they plan to keep Mallya, should be shot in daylight so that it is clear if the prison would get any natural light or not.
The liquor baron, who has been on bail in an extradition warrant since his arrest in April last year, is fighting extradition to India on charges of fraud and money laundering.
The amount is close to around Rs 9,000 crores.
Vijay Mallya arrived at the court accompanied with his son Siddharth.>
