NEW DELHI: Absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who is wanted in connection to a loan default case to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore, was arrested in London, Doordarshan News reported on Tuesday.
The fugitive businessman has been arrested in connection to a money laundering case. He will shortly be produced before a court for a hearing.
Mallya owes as much as Rs 9,000 crore to Indian banks. He has been out on bail after Scotland Yard arrested him on April 18 this year, acting on India’s formal extradition request for him. The 61-year-old chief of the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines fled India last year in March and has been living in Britain since then.
