In a major breakthrough in the Naval war room leak case,one of the main accused Ravi Shankaran,a close relative of the then Naval Chief Admiral Arun Prakash,was arrested in London.

“He has been arrested by the police in London and is at present out on bail. We have moved papers for his extradition,” CBI Director Ashwani Kumar said.

46-year old Shankaran,against whom an Interpol Red Corner notice was issued in 2006,is one of the main accused who had allegedly passed on vital information to certain arms dealers for procurement for Indian Navy.

He was declared a proclaimed offender in 2006 with the government revoking his passport and approaching a UK court for his arrest. However,he had managed to give a slip to London Police and was believed to have been roaming in countries like France,Italy and Denmark.
