India’s Supreme Court has ordered a multi-agency team to track down a Gujarati man hiding in Kenya after he failed to settle his wife's dowry and maintenance fee for nearly eight years.
The Court further directed police to liaise with the Ministry of Internal Affairs to apply for extradition of the man to India upon arrest. The orders were issued on Tuesday, April 26 according to The Times of India.
The woman, through her lawyers, lamented that her husband's parents collude with him to have him escape to Kenya and keep his whereabouts mystery.
She further alleged that her in-laws had told her that her husband was going on a business trip to Nigeria yet he was headed to the East African country.
“We told you several times not to play with the court. Now you must face the consequences. Take all necessary steps to bring HP (suspect) back to India so that the proceedings can continue against him under the criminal law,” the presiding judge said.
