The ruling on whether Indian tycoon Vijay Mallya can be extradited from Britain to India to face fraud charges will be given on December 10, a London judge said on Wednesday, after she heard closing submissions in the case.

But when reporters asked Mallya about the condition of the jail after the video of his cell was presented to him by the Indian authorities, Mallya labelled it as "pretty impressive".

As soon as Jaitley's clarification came out, BJP leaders attacked Congress by saying "it has clearly exposed the false stand of Congress and Vijay Mallya".

In response to Mallya's statement, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the businessman's claim are "factually false" as it does not reflect the truth. He told, "I left because I had a scheduled meeting in Geneva".

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi should immediately order an independent probe into Mallya's "extremely serious allegations" and Jaitley should step down while the investigation is underway. I met the finance minister before I left.

On 1 March: Mallya attends the Rajya Sabha in his capacity as a Member of Parliament.

"Besides this one-sentence exchange where he literally barged on to me while I was walking and tried to make some offer or suggestion which I refused to entertain, there is no question of my having met him, spoken to him..." The Congress says so, and Rahul Gandhi has decried "a clear-cut case of collusion".

He added that the meeting between Mr. Jaitley and Mr. Mallya lasted for 15-20 minutes.

"My attention has been drawn to a statement made to the media by Vijay Mallya on having met me with an offer of settlement. In this anticipation, he (Mallya) left earlier", Jaitley had said, adding that "it would have been better had banks started the process earlier".

"The entire Gandhi family was in fact helping Mallya and Kingfisher Airlines with the sweet deal", Patra said, while showing a bunch of documents related to the loans given by banks to the airline.

"I did not even receive the papers he was holding in his hand", Jaitley said. "We need proper disclosures, full inquiries on this", he said. This provided the opposition some fodder to target Jaitley and the Congress said that the revelations were an embarrassment to the government. "It might interest you to know, banks have filed objections in the court on my settlement application".

Mallya, an alleged financial offender, is facing charges of bank fraud and money laundering in India, amounting to the tune of Rs 9,000 crore.

Mallya has been on bail on an extradition warrant since his arrest in April previous year, responded to the swarm of reporters gathered outside the court in his characteristic manner, saying the "courts will decide".
