High Court sets asides various Arrest Orders against industrialist Vinay Mittal

Delhi High Court sets aside six arrest orders made against Vinay Mittal who was accused of seven fraud cases and was to be extradited from Indonesia in 2018.

The court said he cannot be arrested for an offence till the pending extradition requests are accepted by Indonesia. Mittal was extradited in 2018 after Indonesia accepted one request, rest remained pending.

The court said, “Undisputedly, in terms of the extradition treaty entered into between India and Republic of Indonesia, a person extradited in accordance with the treaty cannot be proceeded against for any offence committed by that person before he was surrender or extradited, other than the offence for which the extradition is granted,”.
