Extradition steps are due to begin against a man wanted on serious charges relating to alleged domestic violence and demanding a dowry in India – after the Recorder tracked him down and brought the case to the attention of the authorities.
The Recorder this week confronted Ahmed Anees Hussain, who has been living in the UK for four years, as to why he had not answered the criminal case in his native India.
His ex-wife Fathima Sumaya Khan, who lived in Endsleigh Gardens, Ilford, claims her family has been placed under immense pressure and left in financial ruin because of what happened.
This week Indian police confirmed steps to issue a Red Corner Notice against Mr Hussain will begin, which requests Interpol to seek arrest of someone with a view to their extradition.
Ms Khan said: “He’s a person wanted in a serious criminal case in India. So now I believe the UK government has to take action.”

When confronted Mr Hussain denied the charges and said: “When I get the money I will go back and sort it out and show that I am innocent.”
