Vijay Mallya has arrived at a UK court in London for his extradition hearing. 

"I have nothing to say, I deny all allegations. I have not eluded any court," ANI reported him as saying before his hearing. 

"I deny all allegations, I have enough evidence to prove my case in court," he said.

Mallya, 61, who fled India last year, owes over Rs 9,000 crore to banks here. 

Mallya is currently living in London. He is wanted in India for defaulting on loan repayments. 

The former liquor baron -- he once owned United Breweries, the maker of the popular Kingfisher beer -- has been declared a proclaimed offender in India.

The banks pleaded for contempt proceedings against Mallya after he received $40 million from British firm Diageo Plc in February last year but transferred the money to his children, instead of repaying the loan.
