Vijay Mallya, the businessman fighting India’s high profile extradition request in $1.4 billion loan case, says he is not missing India.

In a recent interview with a news agency, the business tycoon said, “There's nothing to miss”, he went on to explain, “All my immediate family is either in England or the US. Nobody in India at all. As far as my step-siblings are concerned, they are all UK citizens. So there's nothing family-wise to miss.”

Vijay Mallya left India after the banks that lend him money $1.4 million went to court after he didn’t pay back. He went to the UK and has been living there ever since. Mr. Mallya however, has dismissed the charges against him saying, “This witch hunt against me has been going on for a while.”
