During a hearing the Centre has told the Supreme Court that it is taking all measures to extradite fugitive businessman Vijay Mallya, accused in bank loan default case of over Rs 9,000 crore involving his defunct Kingfisher Airlines from United Kingdom, but the process is being delayed due to some legal issues involved in the matter.

The bench of Justices U U Lalit and Ashok Bhushan posted the matter for further hearing on March 15, after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta sought some time to file report on the status of extradition of Mallya.

At the outset, Mehta shared a letter of the ministry of external affairs’ official Devesh Uttam written to him on the status of extradition of Mallya from the United Kingdom.
