The UK Home Office said it has accepted the Westminster Magistrates Court adjudication for the repatriation of Mallya to India. The representative of the Crown Prosecution Service which contended on behalf of the Indian government, told, “ If after considering the case, the Home Secretary thinks extradition should go ahead he has to order the extradition within two months of the date the matter was referred to him”. The representative said, “Whatever that decision, the losing side has up to 14 days within which to approach the High Court and seek leave to appeal”.

In the repatriation process the solicitor of Mallya, as well as the  Partner of UK-based Boutique Law LLP said, “ Dr Mallya will be carefully considering the court’s judgment and, therefore, it would not be appropriate to make any further comment at this time”.
