Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) will be arguing on behlf of the Indian authorities, when the extradition case comes up for hearing at Westminster Magistrate’s Court.

The CPS had met a joint team of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials in London last month to thrash out details of the case.

“Our aim is to build a strong, infallible case and these meetings will help resolve issues across the table. The CPS will be arguing based on documents provided by CBI and ED, therefore a joint team is here to address queries they may have,” official sources had said after the meeting held in early May.
