According to The Times of India,
the court yesterday said the arrests warrants were necessary because
Malaysia had not provided assistance over the past two years.
(Marshall and Krishnan) could not be served with the summons through
the normal course by resorting to mutual legal assistance treaty between
the two countries.
authorities have categorically declined to effect the service. In such a
situation, the only way left is to approach the Interpol and for that
issue of warrant is necessary…
such a situation when further issuance of summons would be a futile
exercise, it is rightful for the prosecution to ask for warrant of
arrest against the accused,” the court was reported saying.
2014, India’s Central Bureau of Investigation filed charges against the
duo and South Indian politician and former Indian telecommunications
minister Dayanidhi Maran over alleged corruption to help the Maxis group
take control of an Indian mobile phone carrier in 2006.
