In November last year, the Mumbai special court had cleared the extradition proceedings against him. Lalit Modi is wanted in the country on corruption charges. The Enforcement Directorate had urged that a Letter of Request be sent to the UK to extradite Modi to India. It had said that they had not been able to execute the non-bailable warrant against Lalit Modi and therefore not been able to carry forward the investigation.

Hiten Venegoankar, ED Counsel had told ‘The Indian Express’ that the application was sent to the court and if the court allowed, it would be sent to the Ministry of External Affairs of India and then to the Foreign Ministry in the UK to be forwarded to a local court. The appeal was heard before special judge PR Bhavake. Both countries have had an operational MLAT since 1995.
