Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi met his British partner Patsy Wilkinson, the Second permanent secretary in the British Home Office, at North Block on Thursday.
India is probably going to press for early removal of outlaw businessperson Vijay Mallya from the United Kingdom amid the Home Secy-level talks.
The counter-terror cooperation amongst India and the UK other than a large group of different issues will figure in the meeting, official sources said.
The 61-year-old Mallya, who has been living in Britain since a year ago, was captured by the Scotland Yard a month ago on the removal demand of India.
Inside hours of his capture, Mallya, who is blamed for tricking and fakes, was discharged on safeguard by a London court. The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will contend the case for the benefit of the Indian specialists.
India and the UK have a removal settlement, marked in 1992, yet so far just a single removal has occurred under the game plan – Samirbhai Vinubhai Patel, who was sent back to India last October to face trial regarding his association in the post-Godhra mobs of 2002.
Be that as it may, not at all like Mallya, he had submitted to the removal arrange without lawful test. India had given a formal removal ask for Mallya according to the removal settlement amongst India and the UK through a note verbale, a political correspondence, on February 8.
