LONDON — A British court has postponed the final arguments in an extradition hearing for Indian business tycoon Vijay Mallya until Sept. 12, giving prosecutors time to prove that the conditions in a jail in which he would be held pending trial in India are humane.

India wants the 62-year-old businessman to stand trial on money laundering charges. He is fighting to remain in Britain, arguing the charges are politically motivated.

Mallya is accused of misusing loans he obtained to support Kingfisher Airlines in 2009. Prosecutors say he used the money to support his Formula One racing team and other endeavors.

Wearing a tailored dark suit, Mallya listened intently to arguments during the 45-minute hearing Tuesday at Westminster Magistrates Court. Some 30 reporters and television crews mobbed him outside the hearing.
