Delhi HC allows extradition of Kohli to UK
July 27, 2007 12:24 IST
The Delhi high court on Friday allowed extradition of Maninder Pal Singh Kohli to the United Kingdom to face trial in British teenager Hannah Foster rape and murder case.
"There is sufficient evidence to prove prima-facie case against Kohli. The review petition filed by Kohli has no merit and we dismiss it," a Bench comprising Justice Mukul Mudgal and Justice P K Bhasin said.
The court also strongly objected to the remarks made by a British court against the Indian government while dismissing the Centre's plea for extradition of music composer Nadeem to India.
"It (comment) is not justified, but the observation cannot lead us to the conclusion that there is a bias againstAsian community," the Bench said, rejecting Kohli's contention that he would not get fair trial in the United Kingdom.
The court also said, the Supreme Court order rejecting Kohli's petition does not give him the liberty to file review petition in the high court.
