According to an official, who spoke to the portal on the matter, his extradition request got rejected by the higher appellate body in Azerbaijan. He said, "When it was rejected there earlier this month [July], we apprised the development to the [Union] ministry of home affairs (MHA), which asked the Delhi Police to go ahead to bring the gangster back."

For the unversed, Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, also known as Sidhu Moosewala, was shot dead in the Mansa district of Punjab in May 2022.
