India-UK extradition law and practice: the case for reform.

Arnell, Paul



India–UK extradition law and practice need reform. This is particularly acute in rendition of persons from the UK to India. Leading cases including those of Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi and Sanjeev Chawla evidence the need. The scale, nature and fate of Indian extradition requests to the UK, the new geopolitical realities and the heightened desire to co-operate all beg the question of whether UK–India extradition law and practice needs to be reconsidered. The answer is an unequivocal yes.
