Mallya was on Tuesday arrested by the Scotland Yard police and later released by a Westminster court on bail. The arrest was made on the request by India. A court in the UK would begin hearing on May 17 on whether Mallya can be extradited to India or not.

India had initially sought that he be deported. However the UK rejected the request on the ground that he had entered the country on a valid passport. India was then told to take up the case using the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty.
