INDIA has not yet approached Britain for the extradition of liquor baron vijay Mallya and former Indian Premier League (IPL) boss Lalit Modi, both of whom are wanted by Indian investigators in multiple cases of financial wrongdoing, the country’s external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said last Sunday (19).
Her ministry was waiting for the relevant documents from India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED), she said.
“When we get requests for extradition in both the cases, we will send them (to the uK),” Swaraj told reporters in New Delhi last Sunday (19).
Both Mallya and Modi are wanted by the ED in its money laundering probe.
The agency has also sought a global arrest warrant against them from Interpol.
