The Westminster magistrate's court accepted the evidence presented by the Indian government on Friday in the court. Hearing in the case would resume on July 11. She is also set to hear closing arguments as well as schedule a timeline for the verdict in the case, being expected by May, the report added.

After coming out of the court, reporters asked Mallya if it would be the final hearing, to which he quipped, "I would hope so". Nothing wrong with that, no delaying tactics. Before entering the court, Mallya said, "It is another day...we will know in court what happened".

Mallya's defence team has previously deposed the same prisons expert in his extradition case, who told Judge Arbuthnot during the course of the trial that conditions in all Indian jails are "far from satisfactory".

The judge classified the additional material handed in by the Indian side as "very helpful indeed" and said that it is all admissible, except an email which the defence has claimed was privileged interaction between Mallya and his lawyer about "legal advice".

The judge said she was still "on the fence" about admitting that correspondence.

The CBI has submitted a detailed set of documents to the United Kingdom court, which includes its case of conspiracy against former IDBI Bank deputy managing director B K Batra, who was referred to in court as a new "villain" of sorts in the case.

At the last hearing in the case on March 16, Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot had noted that it was "blindingly obvious" that rules were being broken by Indian banks which sanctioned some of the loans to the erstwhile Kingfisher Airlines owned by Mallya.

Liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya, who had represented Karnataka twice in the Rajya Sabha, today said it was his democratic right to vote in the state assembly polls, but lamanted that he can not travel to India, where he is wanted to face charges of fraud and money laundering.
