Former Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi can return to India after the Delhi High Court asked for his passport to be restored.

Modi has been living in London since 2010 and his passport was revoked in 2011 for financial irregularities related to the Twenty20 tournament.

However, Modi managed to stay in England since there was no court order asking for his extradition.

The Delhi High Court says Modi’s passport should be restored since materials taken into consideration while revoking his passport were “extraneous and irrelevant.”
