The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reportedly sent UK authorities a video of the barrack where defunct Kingfisher Airlines' former owner Vijay Mallya will be lodged.
A UK court had asked for a video of the barrack after Mallya, fighting extradition to India, complained of poor conditions in Indian prisons, reported the ANI.
