War Room Leak
Ravi Shankaran traced to Sweden

New Delhi, August 19
Ravi Shankaran, a kin of former Navy chief Admiral Arun Prakash who is the main accused in the war room leak case, has been spotted in Sweden after slipping out of Britain when an arrest warrant was issued against him by a UK court on the CBIs request.

After trailing him for over four months, the CBI found him in Sweden. This prompted the agency to send an alert to the Swedish wing of Interpol for his immediate detention, official sources said.

Shankaran, who has been chargesheeted by the CBI, has not returned to Britain, from where he fled after an additional district judge issued the arrest warrant for him on April 10. He has been criss-crossing Europe without a valid passport as the external affairs ministry revoked his travel document last year.

As a precautionary measure, the CBI alerted several countries, including the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Denmark and Norway, to detain 43-year-old Shankaran as he could use these nations as a makeshift base to ward off arrest by law enforcing agencies. PTI
