The arrest of fugitive Vijay Mallya in London today is a huge surprise, considering that England has always been a haven for rich criminals.
So, to that extent, it is a significant win for the Modi Government.
Who next then? Lalit Modi, another economic offender facing money laundering charges in India?
That is unlikely given Lalit Modi’s friendship with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and several senior leaders of the BJP.
