NEW DELHI: The CBI has forwarded to the Interpol a request by Delhi Police for a Red Corner Notice against defence consultant Sanjay Bhandari.
Bhandari is alleged to have moved to London via Nepal giving a slip to the police which had registered a case under the provisions of Officials Secrets Act, law to protect confidential documents.
The CBI is the nodal body in India for affairs related to the Lyon-based Interpol. Any agency which wants help of the Interpol has to submit its request to the CBI which then forwards it to the Interpol.
Once the Interpol completes its due procedure, it may issue a Red Corner Notice asking its member countries to arrest Bhandari whenever identified.
But Bhandari has legal options to challenge the notice and also present his case to the Interpol.
Police had registered a case in connection with the recovery of confidential documents of the Ministry of Defence from the residence of Bhandari and his associate during an IT raid in April, 2016. (AGENCIES)
