New Delhi: India said on Thursday that its commitment to extradite fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya “is very strong” and it will continue to make all efforts to bring him back from the UK.
The reply from Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar came as a UK court said that Mallya’s appeal in the UK High Court against his extradition order has been listed for a three-day hearing from February 11 next year.
Asked why the dates were so far away, Kumar said that India cannot do anything about the dates. “It is a judicial process. It is for the court to decide on the next hearing. They will consult the parties and decide on the dates,” he said. (IANS)
