Vijay Mallya said Indian authorities had no grounds to extradite him from UK and he is safe here.

Recently, in the series of tweets, he compared himself to a “football” between the leading political of India and also accused media of being used against by him.

India wants Vijay Mallya to face trial over the charges of conspiracy, money laundering and a loan default case of defunct Kingfisher airlines.

In March last year, liquor tycoon left the country and moved to UK after Indian authorities sued him.

At the launch of the Force India Formula One car, Vijay Mallya told Reuters in an interview “I am safe in this country under UK laws, until proven otherwise. And I would rather be safe than sorry because I certainly do not want to be at the mercy of some maverick in the government of India.”

“There is a requirement for legal and judicial determination here in the U.K., let them come with whatever evidence they have — but I doubt if they have any evidence — and then let the law take its own course,” he said.
