Exiled Kingfisher tycoon Vijay Mallya’s defence team claims that the CBI has brought a “series of false statements” against him, as arguments over the admissibility of the prosecution evidence flared up in court. Mallya’s defence, barrister Clare Montgomery QC, on Friday argued that much of the Indian government’s evidence was inadmissible according to UK criminal standards because many of the witness statements were repetitious and “similar”. She also said some of the evidence had no affidavit explaining the circumstances in which it was taken and banking officials not involved with Mallya’s case had given evidence.
