Shock from supreme court
64-year-old Vijay Mallya was dealt a major blow by the order of the British Supreme Court. Earlier in the month of April, he was also defeated in the High Court of Britain.
In the month of June, the Indian government had urged Britain not to give asylum to Vijay Mallya, because there is no basis for him that he would be tortured in India. Then the UK government also indicated that Mallya may be extradited soon
