Jayesh Patel, an alleged land mafia gangster accused of contract killings was facing an extradition trial in Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London which concluded on Tuesday. March 3, 2023, is set as a provisional date for handing down the judgement.
Jayesh Patel (43) was arrested in London on March 16, 2021, after being accused of being the mastermind behind the murder of Jamnagar lawyer Kirit Joshi in 2018. Since then, he has been held in London’s Belmarsh Prison, and the Indian government has requested his extradition.
Claire Dobbin KC, An Indian government representative, told the court that the UK had a “public interest” in complying with treaty obligations. The Supreme Court refused to hear the case of wanted diamantaire Nirav Modi even though he claimed depression and suicidal thoughts. The court was not satisfied that his mental condition made extraditing him oppressively.”
Patel’s attorney argued against extradition on the grounds that Jayesh has “worsening mental health- consumed by guilt and pessimism and losing control.”
