Century Direct Group received reports that Chile police arrested a man that may be one of the conspirators of hijacking of Air India IC-814 airplane. Abdul Rauf was arrested in Chile for possession of a fake visa and was taken into custody after the police also learned that he is wanted by Indian government and Interpol.
On December 24, 1999 IC-814 airplane was hijacked in a city of Kandahar. For eight days the abductors have kept the plane and its passengers until they were swamped for the three militants including Mr. Rauf’s brother-in-law Maulana Azhar, a well known terrorist. Since India and Chile does not have extradition treaty with each other it may be difficult for India to secure Abdul’s deportation.
