New Delhi, August 25: Countering charges levelled by liquor baron Vijay Mallya that condition in Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail are "inhuman", the Central Bureau of Investigation submitted a video in London's Westminster Magistrates' Court showing proper natural light in the Cell Number 12, where the absconding businessman will be lodged after extradition.
The central probe agency submitted a 10-minute long video footage before the UK court earlier this week. The video recording was submitted following an earlier request by the Westminster Magistrate's Court to compile a detailed video of barrack 12 after Mallya complained about conditions of the Indian jail.
Mallya's lawyers in the court on July 31 debated on the condition of toilet and natural light in Arthur Road Jail. The final submissions in Mallya trial has been postponed till September 12.
His defence claimed that he would not face a fair trial if returned to India and would be subjected to "inhuman" conditions if kept in the Arthur Road Jail.
In submissions to the court, the Indian authorities outlined that there would be adequate toilet and washing facilities, including private separate toilet - including a Western Commode - and washing facilities that would be regularly cleaned.
The government also reassured the court that Mallya would be provided with adequate bedding - including regularly cleaned bed linen and pillows.
