Vijay Mallya arrested in UK, gets bail

Indian businessman and politician Vijay Mallya was arrested by police in London in the UK on Tuesday.

This is after the government of India requested the UK police to arrest Mallya in relation to cases of fraud and money laundering.

But it is reported that it was a voluntary arrest and Mallya was let off on bail within three hours.

'Usual Indian media hype. Extradition hearing in Court started today as expected,' Mallya tweeted soon after getting the bail.

Mallya left India last year after being followed by banks to recover more than Rs 9,000 crore owed by his company Kingfisher Airlines.
