India explores possibilities of bringing back Lalit Modi
India has written to the British Foreign Office about Lalit Modi, who has been staying in the UK for nearly two years.

New Delhi: Exploring the possibilities of bringing back former Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi, who is facing charges of financial irregularities in the conduct of the T-20 cricket tournament, India has written to the British Foreign Office on the issue. The former IPL commissioner has been staying in the UK for nearly two years.

This comes two days after, according to sources, the Finance Ministry wrote to the External Affairs Ministry pointing out that Modi continued to stay in the UK for a long time even after his passport has been revoked.

The matter is, however, sub-judice. It has asked the Foreign Ministry to take the help of British authorities to get Modi back to India.

According to sources, the request by the Finance Ministry was made on the plea of the Enforcement Directorate which is probing the role of Modi in the alleged financial irregularities in the conduct of various editions of the T-20 tournament.
