List of fugitive economic offenders living abroad

 28 fugitive economic offenders are living outside India, according to External Affairs Ministry

The Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate are pursuing legal actions to bring back 28 Indians, including six women, who have been charged for financial irregularities and criminal offences, and are believed to be living abroad since 2015.

Union Minister of State for External Affairs, Gen. (Retd.) V.K. Singh submitted the names of such persons to Lok Sabha on July 25, 2018. Replying to a question posed by Prof. K.V. Thomas, Mr. Singh said: "efforts are being made for securing the presence of these accused in the country by way of issuance of LOC (Look out circular), RCN (Red Corner Notice) and Extradition requests."

While the CBI is pursuing the cases pertaining to 23 fugitives, the ED is handling 13 cases. Eight persons — Vijay Mallya, Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi, Jatin Mehta, Ashish Jobanputra, Chetan Jayantilal Sandesara, Nitin Jayantilal Sandesara, and Diptiben Chetankumar Sandesara — figure in both lists.

To a similar question posed in the Rajya Sabha on March 23, 2018, Mr. Singh said 23 fugitives are yet to be extradited since 2014. As of March 2018, India has signed extradition treaties with 48 countries including the USA, UAE, France, Germany, the U.K, and Hong Kong. In addition, extradition arrangements have been signed with Croatia, Italy, and Sweden.
