Arrest Ananda: India needs to apply for extradition first - IGP

Unless there is an extradition order, police cannot act on the warrants issued by India to arrest billionaire T Ananda Krishnan and Astro All Asia Networks Plc Deputy Chairman Ralph Marshall.

In a report by Malay Mail Online, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar explained that the requirement applied to all countries, except for Singapore.

“India needs to apply for an extradition via mutual legal assistance through the (Attorney-General’s) Chambers,” the nation’s top cop was quoted by the portal as saying.

Bloomberg had earlier reported that a court in New Delhi, India, had issued arrest warrants for the Malaysian tycoon and Marshall over allegations of corruption involving the purchase of an Indian telecommunications company by Malaysian telco Maxis, which is controlled by the former.

The court said the matter of the alleged phone-licence corruption would be split into separate investigations for allegations pertaining to the two Malaysians and those involving former Indian Telecommunications Minister Dayanidhi Maran.

India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sought the warrants of arrest to get Krishnan and Marshall to face court proceedings following allegations that Maran improperly favoured an operator.

The report also stated that investigators told the court that they were seeking the arrest warrants as attempts to serve the two Malaysians with summonses to appear in court had failed.-26/9/2016
