Extradition involves the delivery of a person accused or convicted of an offence from the State within whose jurisdiction the person is found to the State where the said offence has taken place or where the person was convicted, upon the request made by the latter. It is an act of international cooperation involving two States. The process of extradition between two States can be followed either by Extradition Treaty or by Extradition Arrangements. India has extradition treaties with 48 States and extradition arrangements with 12 States. This paper aims at analysing the Extradition Treaty between India and USA and also studies the circumstances in which the Requested States can deny the request of extradition.
