UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid has formally approved Vijay Mallya's extradition to India. The fugitive billionaire businessman's extradition had been ordered on December 10, 2018 by the Westminster Magistrates' Court. 

Mallya is wanted in India on fraud and money laundering charges amounting to an estimated Rs 9,000 crore.

Mallya had only last week complained that his group's assets — "worth over 13,000 crores" — had been attached by the consortium of banks to which he owes the money. Mallya said that that was far over the Rs 9,000 crore he owes to the banks.

"Where is justice or fair play?" he tweeted. 

Mallya added that the "banks have given an open licence to their lawyers in England to pursue multiple frivolous litigations against me." 

"Who is accountable for spending public money on legal fees in such a brazen manner?" he then went on to ask.


Here is an account of Mallya's assets in England and Wales, and how much they are worth:
Mallya's Hertfordshire estate, Ladywalk and Bramble Lodge, is worth an estimated 15 million pounds.

Mallya's London pad, 18/19 Cornwall Terrace — a lavish townhouse — is worth of tens of millions of pounds.

Mallya's assets in England also include a fleet of cars which he reportedly spends Rs 24 lakh a month maintaining, and a 164-foot super yacht, Force India.

According to reports, Mallya's total assets in England and Wales add up to about Rs 10,499 crore. There is however still some uncertainty over what all exactly the fugitive billionaire actually owns there.
