A court in the United Kingdom ordered on Monday to extradite Vijay Mallya to India to face charges of financial irregularities running into thousands of crores but the businessman is unlikely to return anytime soon.

The 62-year-old former boss of Kingfisher Airlines has been on bail since his arrest on an extradition warrant in April last year. He has contested that the extradition case against him is “politically motivated” and the loans he has been accused of defrauding on were sought to keep his now-defunct airline afloat.
