The Indian government is to make a fresh appeal to the British government to bring back former Indian Premier League Commissioner Lalit Mod.
Mr Modi – who lives in London and is a regular on the British Asian social circuit – faces charges of financial irregularities in India surrounding the multi-billion dollar T20 cricket tournament.
The Indian Finance Ministry has reportedly written to the External Affairs Ministry pointing out that Modi continues to stay in the UK for a long time even though his passport has been revoked.
The matter is, however, sub-judice.
It has asked the Foreign Ministry to take the help of British authorities to get Modi back to India.
Mr Modi is under investigation in India on a range of charges, including match-fixing and betting in the IPL and helping family and friends secure control in IPL franchises; charges denied by Modi.
