Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher on Wednesday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the NDA government's efforts to bring back the fraudsters who fled the country after duping crores of funds from the citizens.
Anupam Kher took to Twitter and wrote, "Whenever you hear the voices indicating the democracy or the Constitution is in danger, then the chowkidaar has caught one more thief" - which clearly implied on the recent developments in which multiple fraudsters and scam accused were brought to India or will soon be extradited to India in connection to several scams that have hit the country's democracy and development by the efforts of Modi government.

Meanwhile, on February 4, UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid ordered the extradition of Vijay Mallya to India, in a major blow to the embattled liquor baron. The 63-year-old businessman had lost a legal challenge against his extradition in a British court in December. Under the Extradition Treaty procedures, the Chief Magistrate’s verdict was sent to the Home Secretary because only he is authorised to order Mallya’s extradition.
Furthermore, In another win for the Indian government in their efforts to unearth the corruption in the defence deals, Christian Michel's aide, Rajiv Saxena - co-accused in Agusta scam - and Deepak Talwar - a corporate lobbyist - were extradited from Dubai and brought back to the Indian shores late on January 31, following which they will be taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
This is the second major success for the investigative agencies in the scams concerning defence deals following the arrest of Christian Michel, the middleman in the Agusta scam, who was extradited to India from Dubai in December 2018.
