More than two decades after the Purulia arms drop case shocked India, Denmark has agreed to hand over Kim Davy, the key accused in the case.
The next submissions hearing in the extradition trial of Vijay Mallya over alleged fraud and money laundering amounting to Rs 9,000 crores remains uncertain.
Rijiju said the Indian govt is confident about its evidence in the case and satisfied with the cooperation from the UK side on extradition matters.
The UK judge presiding over Mallya's extradition trial has granted him bail till Apr 2 as defence argued against the admissibility of evidence presented by Indian govt.
Vijay Mallya, wanted in India on charges of fraud and money laundering appeared in court for a hearing related to his extradition trial.
Mallya will face next year a parallel litigation brought by 13 Indian banks to freeze nearly USD 1.5 billion of his assets.
Mallya's extradition trial is set to hear more expert witness statements as his defence seeks to establish that there are no grounds to force him to return to India.
Mallya arrived in court here as the trial to prove a prima facie case of fraud against him resumed to determine if he can be extradited to India.
Mallya returned to a UK court here for the third day of his extradition trial, which will determine whether he can be forced to return to India.
"The focus of our case will be on his (Mallya’s) conduct and how he misled the bank and misused the proceeds," said CPS barrister.
