Talwar, alleged to be involved in a number of international deals during the UPA regime including the infamous AugustaWestland, was extradited along with another high profile fugitive Rakesh Saxena from UAE. Meanwhile, the letter by Digvijay to Talwar which has emerged has become a major cause of embarrassment for the Congress party.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) then informed authorities in UAE that the duo’s passports were cancelled by the Indian government. Even the UAE government had refused to give Saxena and Talwar permanent residency status, making the job easy for the Indian government.
For the past few weeks, government authorities were in talks about expediting and easing the process of deportation. The Indian Government and agencies were also aware that the extradition was a long process that could take years.
Soon after their passports were cancelled, two teams of UAE authorities picked both of them up from their residences around 9:30 am UAE time and deported them to India around 5:30pm UAE time on a special plane arranged by Indian authorities.
The operation was being monitored by the NSA. Apart from Doval, only a select few officers were kept in the loop which included ED director Sanjay Kumar Mishra.
