Vijay Mallya took Jet Airways flight on the day and had checked-in with seven baggages but it was reported that he was accompanied by a female passenger.

But sources close to Mr. Mallya asserted that it was a voluntary arrest and he was let off on bail within three hours.

Businessman and loan defaulter Vijay Mallya was today arrested by Scotland Yard on an extradition warrant in United Kindom.

To recover the loans defaulted by Mallya, banks went on to auction his lavish bungalows and costly villas, but their efforts went in vein as the bidding received poor response from buyers. He was produced before the Westminster Magistrates' Court in London.

In New Delhi, the government hailed Mallya's arrest, saying it would not spare anyone who indulged in fraud. The Force India boss was arrested after attending a central London police station and is set to appear in front of Westminster Magistrates' Court later today (18th April).

"Usual Indian media hype", said a tweet sent from Mallya's official Twitter account.

"The court usually focuses on whether there is sufficient criminality to extradite someone", said Andrew Smith, a partner at London law firm Corker Binning. Last year, Britain extradited Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel who was wanted by India in relation to the 2002 Gujarat riots, leading to hopes for future successful extradition requests.

Vijay Mallya had previously submitted before the court on September 9 that he wanted to return to India but was incapacitated because of his passport being revoked. The special court for Prevention of Money Laundering Act cases also issued a Non-Bailable warrant against Mallya.

Mallya made his fortune selling beer and subsequently invested in aviation and sporting arenas including Formula One racing and Indian Premier League cricket.
