THE hearing on the issue of embattled Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya’s extradition from the UK has been deferred to June 13, Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said on Friday.

The CPS will be arguing on behalf of the Indian authorities when the fugitive businessman’s extradition case comes up for hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on June 13. The hearing was earlier scheduled for May 17. “The next hearing is June 13,” a CPS spokesperson said.

A 4-member joint CBI and ED team had arrived in London earlier this month. “Our aim is to build a strong, infallible case and these meetings will help resolve issues across the table. The CPS will be arguing based on documents provided by CBI and ED, therefore a joint team is here to address queries they may have,” official sources had said.
