Nadeem to petition Indian government for return
January 21, 2003 20:39 IST
London-based music composer Nadeem Akhtar Saifee will petition the Government of India for the recall of the red corner notice and non-bailable warrant issued against him in September 1997 in connection with the Gulshan Kumar murder case to facilitate his return to the country from London, his lawyer said in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Nadeem had won court battles in Britain to resist the Indian government's efforts to seek his extradition.
Majeed Memon, his counsel, said Nadeem had been exonerated by multiple judicial verdicts and it was time that he sought a safe passage to India.
Gulshan Kumar was killed on August 12, 1997. At that time Nadeem was in London. Police alleged he had planned the murder and since then Nadeem has not returned.
