New Delhi:

The next date of hearing in fugitive liquor baron Vijay Mallya's extradition case to be held on 14th September at 2 pm, in London.

When asked why did he run away from Indian law, Mallya said that he has been living in London since 1992.

Earlier, Mallya appeared before the Westminster Magistrates Court for the hearing in his extradition case.

"I do as my lawyers advise," the 61-year-old former chief of erstwhile Kingfisher Airlines had said when asked about his appearance despite being granted an exemption by Chief Magistrate Emma Louise Arbuthnot at last hearing on June 13.

"This is a court. Let them present what evidence they have and we will present our case," he had told reporters outside the court house before the start of his hearing.

Mallya was arrested by Scotland Yard in April and has been out on bail until December 4, the date tentatively fixed as the final hearing in the case.
