Mafia Jayesh Patel alias Jaysukh Ranpariya remanded in custody in UK

London: Notorious land mafia, extortionist and accused in 45 cases of crime including murder, Jayesh Patel alias Jaysukh Ranpariya after his arrest in Sutton (South London) on Tuesday by Scotland Yard’s Extradition Unit, was produced before Westminster Magistrates’ court in London on Wednesday and remanded in custody in Wandsworth prison until a next hearing of the case later this month on March 24. Ranpariya has refused consent to be extradited to India to face criminal charges.

“Jaysukh Ranpariya of Sutton Plaza, Sutton, appeared in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court following his arrest by detectives from the Met’s Extradition Unit. Ranpariya was arrested on Tuesday, 16 March, in Sutton [south London] under an international arrest warrant issued the same day on behalf of the Indian authorities. He is wanted for an offence of conspiracy to murder in India,” said a Metropolitan Police statement.

The Interpol had issued a Red Corner Notice against Ranpariya to alert countries to take him into custody

“The UK has received a provisional extradition request from the Indian authorities for Jasysukh Ranpariya, who is wanted to face charges of conspiracy to murder from April 2018. The full request is due to be served by 20 May 2021,” the UK Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

A team of Jamnagar Police is likely to leave for London to interrogate Jayesh and assist the lawyers in legal procedure.

How Jayesh was nabbed:

Gujarat Police started by collecting technical data and traced the mobile applications through which Patel’s victims got extortion calls which were made using voice over internet protocol (VOIP). Police gathered these IP addresses that he used to make the extortion calls from, via WhatsApp. Cops then invoked the India-UK Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) which helped them seek details of Patel’s movements as well as details of IP addresses which he was using to communicate with his gang members and family. The investigators were already following the money trail from Jamnagar to London and Patel was collected extortion money through various illegal channels. Police then traced some people through whose accounts Patel was getting the money and found that most of them were in the UK. The Jamnagar police with the help of UK law enforcement agency first stopped Patel’s extortion income, which left him financially distressed. Jayesh’s wife and daughter had visited London to meet him before the lockdown last year and returned in Vande Bharat flights run by the Government of India to bring back Indian stranded abroad. Gujarat Police sent her travel details to the UK counterparts and based on that received details of her location in London.
