Mumbai: The CBI, which has sought the extradition of embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya from UK in connection with his alleged role in his defunct airline’s default on loans worth around Rs 900 crore by the IDBI bank, has said that all relevant documents, including evidence against him, has been submitted to UK authorities already and denied any delay in sending the same.
On February 9 itself, when the CBI had forwarded Mallya’s extradition request to UK authorities, the agency had enclosed with it the evidence, the main case chargesheet that was filed in a court in January, said a CBI source. According to the source, the CBI had subsequently sent “additional evidence”, including a case supplementary chargesheet that was handed over to UK authorities last Friday.
Further, on April 18, UK’s Crown Prosecution Services (CPS)’s prosecutors had sought a meeting in connection with the extradition request with officers of CBI and ED.
