-------- LONDON CALLING London has emerged as a safe haven for those who want to escape the law in India. Through eyewitness accounts and archival records, DANISH KHAN and RUHI KHAN delve into twelve extraordinary cases of extradition over seven decades to unravel the legal quagmire that has caused much debate in Her Majesty's courts, and consternation in New Delhi's corridors of power.Escaped examines the extradition of billionaire VIJAY MALLYA and diamantaire NIRAV MODI, throws a spotlight on their ultra-luxe world, uncovers the complex ownership of their UK assets and brings to life the intense courtroom battles. The book also chronicles the saga of cricket bookie SANJEEV CHAWLA, now dispatched to India, and that ofmusic director NADEEM SAIFI, who has been exonerated but can never return home. It explores how drug lord IQBAL MIRCHI and terror accused HANIF PATEL evaded extradition, and investigates the loopholes that saved convicted paedophile RAYMOND VARLEY and NRI parents ARTI DHIR and KAVAL RAIJADA, accused of murdering their adopted child. The book reveals the inside story of how RAVI SHANKARAN, the alleged spy, was setfree, and how the famed NARANG BROTHERS were snagged for trading in stolen Indian artefacts. Taking a trip through history, the book recounts how a newly independent India managed to bring back two powerfulindustrialists, DHARMA JAYANTI TEJA and MUBARAK ALI AHMED, who were involved in financial crimes.Escaped decodes why London is an irresistiblesiren for Indian fugitives.The book by Danish Khan and Ruhi Khan is based on in-depth research of 12 cases of fugitives from India who reached the United Kingdom. For anyone who is interested in knowing how extradition proceedings are really conducted and what kind of scrutiny is done before granting extradition this is an extremely useful and easy to read book. The poor rate of success is largely due to shoddy paperwork and the unhygienic conditions of Indian prisons. The lesson for Indian policy makers is to make the Indian criminal justice system more humane. - Faizan Mustafa, law expert and vice-chancellor, NALSAR University of Law An exhaustive and meticulously researched study of the Indian rogues and fraudsters who have sought shelter behind Britain's complicated extradition laws, which is entertaining as it is illuminating. - Mick Brown, Journalist, The Telegraph, UKEscaped has 12 gripping accounts of Indian fugitives who have found shelter in the UK. London residents and authors Danish Khan and Ruhi Khan craft a book that offers more than a deep-dive into how the famous fugitives made their great escape. It also offers rare insights into their lives before and after their fall. The book covers a wide gamut of issues surrounding the crime - from the loopholes that allowed the criminals to escape, to the ineffective foreign policy...what made Escaped come alive are cases that are now lost in dusty files, crimes that were staged long ago. - MoneyControl
