    As India works hard to ensure return of fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held discussion on economic offenders, the case of Vijay Mallya was also discussed.

    Mallya has been in the UK for months, escaping arrest warrants against him, while a court in London is also hearing a case regarding his return to India.

    Mallya, who is wanted in India for Kingfisher Airlines' default on loans worth nearly Rs 9,000 crore, has been in the UK since March 2016.

    In April 2017, he had attended a central London police station for his arrest and was released on conditional bail a few hours later after providing a bail bond worth 650,000 pounds, assuring the court of abiding by all conditions associated with extradition proceedings, such as the surrender of his passport and a ban on him possessing any travel documents.

    India and the UK have an Extradition Treaty, signed in 1992, but so far only one extradition has taken place under the arrangement --Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel, who was sent back to India last October to face trial in connection with his involvement in the post-Godhra riots of 2002.
