The Centre on Wednesday told the Delhi high court that the questioning of extradited fugitive criminal Sanjeev Chawla does not violate any assurance given by it to authorities of the United Kingdom. 

Appearing for the Home Ministry and Delhi Police, additional solicitor general (ASG) Sanjay Jain submitted before Justice Anu Malhotra that the whole purpose of the extradition would be defeated if “we can’t investigate, confront or corroborate evidence” against Chawla. 

Brought to India from the UK, alleged bookie is currently lodged in the Tihar Jail to face trial in one of cricket’s biggest match fixing scandals that involved former South African captain Hansie Cronje.
