UK won’t be able to deport Vijay Mallya

New Delhi: Vijay Mallya left India for the UK on 2nd March. The Indian government had last month sought the deportation of Mallya after revoking his passport.

But on Monday UK expressed its inability to accede to the request “through a note verbale to the High Commission” despite the fact that Mallya’s diplomatic passport was revoked by the external affairs ministry on 24 April.

Indian foreign ministry Vikas Swarup said that “The UK Government has informed us that under the 1971 Immigration Act, the UK does not require an individual to hold a valid passport in order to remain in the UK if they have extant leave to remain as long as their passport was valid when leave to remain or enter the UK was conferred.”  

At the same time, the UK acknowledges the seriousness of the allegations and is keen to assist Government of India.
