New Delhi: Arthur Road jail in Mumbai will be the home of fugitive baron Vijay Mallya if he is extradited to India to face the law in connection with the Rs 9000 Crore loan default case.
The Westminster Magistrates Court in London told that it is duty of the state to ensure the safety of prisoners and Mr Mallya's apprehension about threat to his life is misleading.
The move came after Mallya's lawyer said that the businessman's life may be in danger if he is extradited to India and there were alleged incidents of humans rights violations in the jail.
The London court will be told that there will be no threat to Mr Mallya life if he is lodged in Arthur Road jail, which is highly secure as per the international standards.
Mallya, 61 has been in the UK since March 2016 and was arrested by the Scotland yard on an extradition warrant on April 18. However he was granted bail by the court later.
