  • India should change its laws to allow prosecution of criminals in absentia, Try them and then declare them as fugitives and put out an Interpol notice. Then let us see if the western nations protect fugitives. If they do, invite the white collar criminals to come to India with their money and live happily ever after.

  • It would be highly advisable for the Government of India to make it absolutely certain that there is no connection between individuals identified as part of the criminal element operating at home and abroad, and its intelligence agencies and personnel assigned to achieve specific goals. Additionally, there are no criminals on its official and unofficial payroll or serving its objectives in exchange for lenient treatment from its law enforcement agencies or judicial courts.
