Earlier this month, the Modi Government succeeded in extraditing the middle man Christian Michel in the Rs 3600 crore Agusta Westland scam and gave a blow to his friends in India’s political arena. Days later, the Indian agencies even convinced the UK court to extradite the liquor baron Vijay Mallya.
Few are asking why the central government under the guidance of PM Modi and NSA Ajit Doval is doing all these only when the 2019 Lok Sabha elections are approaching and why it wasn’t done earlier. To all these ignorant Modi haters, here a bad news. Since the last 3 years the government has succeeded in extraditing a total of 11 fugitive criminals from various countries including Christian Michel.
This was revealed by Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh in a written response to a question in the Lok Sabha. He stated “In the last three years, 11 fugitive criminals from various foreign countries, including the recent extradition of Christian Michel from UAE, were successfully brought back to India”.
He added “As of now, India has signed extradition treaties with 50 countries and entered into extradition arrangements with 10 more countries”.
Many more fugitives will be brought back to India as Mr V K Singh said that the government has been making every effort to bring back fugitive criminals who have fled after committing crime.
With this statement, one thing is clear that no matter how powerful the fugitives are, the Modi government won’t spare them. After the victory in UK court against Mallya, the central government is apparently confident in nabbing the diamond don Nirav Modi and his uncle Choksi.
Months ago, getting back Mallya seemed impossible but after the UK court ordered extradition, by the end of January the liqour baron could be expected to have a good treatment in the Indian jail. Earlier this year the Indian authorities had said Vijay Mallya will be kept at Barrack 12 of Arthur Road Prison when he is brought back
