Scotland Yard officers prepare to hand over alleged bookie Sanjeev Chawla to Delhi Police

AIR
Scotland Yard officers are preparing to hand over alleged bookie Sanjeev Chawla to their counterparts in Delhi Police to face match-fixing charges in Indian courts.

The 50-year-old British national is a key accused in the match-fixing scandal involving former South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje in 2000.

According to officials, the final legal paperwork in the case is now being concluded for the handover to take place at Heathrow Airport this week. Chawla, who was on bail, will be taken back into custody by the Met Police before the handover to Indian authorities. 

On being flown back to Delhi, he is expected to undergo the required medical examinations. Thereafter, he will be held in custody in Tihar jail in accordance with the Indian government's assurances to the UK courts.

This would mark the first high-profile extradition of its kind under the India-UK Extradition Treaty, signed in 1992.
