London: Britain's Home Secretary has signed the order paving the way for the extradition of tycoon Vijay Mallya to India to face financial fraud allegations.

The Home Office said in a statement Monday that Sajid Javid, "having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed the order for Vijay Mallya's extradition to India."

Mallya, who is accused in India of conspiracy to defraud, making false representations and money laundering offenses, has 14 days to appeal.
