Indian agencies will try and bring to the notice of the court in United Kingdom about the Dual Criminality of Vijay Mallya. Indian agencies will try and prove in the UK court that Mallya's action to defraud Indian banks not only attracts Indian law but at the same time it attracts various sections of UK Fraud Act 2006. Indian agencies have also shared copies of statements collected by various accused/ witnesses during the course of the investigation. It is important to note that dual criminality is the basic requirement for extradition. ED will shortly file a prosecution complaint on Vijay Mallya
