It is widely acknowledged that the Government of India ("GOI"), in the recent years, has taken a tougher stance against economic offenders fleeing to foreign jurisdictions to evade criminal prosecution and to enjoy the fruits of their crimes. The GOI has made concerted efforts to increase the number of countries with which it has extradition treaties including with Afghanistan, Lithuania, Malawi and Morocco.1 The enforcement agencies such as the Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate have also been reinvigorated to pursue economic offenders to foreign shores through the mechanism of extradition. Extradition is often a complex process and usually involves navigating the relevant extradition treaties or extradition arrangements, as well as the domestic laws of the country who receives the extradition request ("Requested State") from the country seeking extradition ("Requesting State") of the accused or convicted individual ("Requested Person"). India has extradition treaties with 50 countries and extradition arrangements with 11 countries.2 Extradition treaties are bilateral treaties which provide a defined legal framework and obligates the contracting states to extradite to each other, individuals that are accused, charged with or convicted of extraditable offences. On the other hand, extradition arrangements are non binding and do not carry legal obligations on the party states.3

Because Google;s stock Android features only a limited set of screenshot controls, unlike the robust controls you see from Samsung, people have complained to them about it from time to time. I did about a year ago, actually. I wrote an entire piece requesting that Google add screenshot scroll capture, because almost every other phone manufacturer on the planet had built it into their own skins, on top of Android. It;s a standard feature at this point, unless you own a Google phone.According to Dave Burke, VP of Wear OS Mockery (he 's actually Android 's VP of engineering), that specific feature will finally come to Android when Android R shows up. Well, maybe. Burke said on Twitter today that they "added scrollable screenshots to the hopper for Android R and hopefully can land it in that release. " So that 's no guarantee, but an acknowledgement that they could add it. Great.
