Thai court backs India in bid to extradite Chhota Shakeel's aide
Zingada, whom Pakistan was trying to claim as its national, an official said here today.
submitted by Indian authorities nailed the gangster's lie in the court, he said.
In an attempt to prove himself as a Pakistani national to avoid law in India, Zingada had submitted before the court the birth certificate of his son and related documents, the crime branch official said.
The court's ruling is being seen as a setback for underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, as Zingada's extradition could help India's claim about Ibrahim's presence in Pakistan.
The court has given one-month time to Zingada to challenge the order, and in the meantime authorities at the Indian embassy in Thailand will issue a warrant against him to start his extradition process, he said.
However, the court refused to acknowledge these documents given the strong evidences presented by India.
The official refused to elaborate on the matter, saying they had not yet received a copy of the order.
Rajan had survived the attack but his close aide Rohit Verma was killed.
He was then arrested in Thailand and convicted in the case of attack on Rajan.
Pakistan was also trying to take his custody through the diplomatic channel by submitting his Pakistani passport and school leaving certificate to the Thai authorities.
In 2016, the Crime Branch team had travelled to Thailand to expedite the process.
The police team had submitted in a Thai court a dossier on Zingada, mentioning his crime record in Mumbai during his stay between 1994-97 along with his personal
details, the official said.(This story has not been edited by Devdiscourse staff and is auto-generated from a syndicated feed.)
