London: Vijay Mallya has been granted bail by the Westminster Magistrates’ Court, three hours after he was arrested in London by the Scotland Yard.
Mallya, who has been declared an absconder in India, is likely to be extradited and a team from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will visit the United Kingdom soon.
Usual Indian media hype. Extradition hearing in Court started today as expected.

New Delhi had cancelled Mr Mallya’s passport and asked the UK government to deport him to India. But the foreign ministry was told that India’s deportation request was not covered under UK laws that allowed visitors to stay back even if their passport wasn’t valid any longer.
