Vijay Mallya has submitted a 'renewal application' in the UK High Court, making another attempt at appealing against his extradition to India to face fraud and money laundering charges amounting to Rs 9,000 crores.
Vijay Mallya, the former Kingfisher Airlines boss, accused of defrauding Indian banks, has filed an application seeking permission to appeal against his extradition order signed off by UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid last month.
Judge Emma Arbuthnot on Friday hearing the second bail plea of Nirav Modi asked the prosecution whether the fugitive diamantaire would be lodged in the same jail cell along with Vijay Mallya if he is also extradited to India.

In a major boost to India's efforts to bring back Vijay Mallya, who is wanted for loan default worth around Rs 9,000 crore to a consortium of 13 banks led by SBI, a UK court on Monday ordered his extradition.
A magistrate’s court in London decided Monday that the former owner-promoter of the defunct Kingfisher Airlines will be repatriated back to India to face economic offence charges including alleged fraud.
