India asks UK to deport Vijay Mallya

The Indian government has asked the UK to deport Vijay Mallya, the former head of Kingfisher Airlines, as part of an investigation into money laundering.

The businessman, who is said to have debts of about $1bn, left India in March and is believed to be in the UK.

Last week authorities in India revoked his diplomatic passport after a court issued a warrant for his arrest.

Mr Mallya, who is a member of the Indian parliament, has denied any wrongdoing.

It is alleged he repeatedly failed to appear before investigators looking into financial irregularities at Kingfisher Airlines, which collapsed in 2013.

Mr Mallya said on Twitter in March that he was an international businessman who had to travel and denied fleeing from India. India’s foreign ministry said it had contacted the UK government to ask for Mr Mallya to be handed over, but was yet to receive a response.
