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.

Mallya, the liquor baron who fled the country owing Indian banks around Rs 9,000 crore reportedly has a golden toilet in his UK mansion to relieve himself.
Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines, which went belly up in 2012, owes a consortium of 17 banks nearly Rs 9,000 crore as loans and interest.
