About this item
Correspondence and other papers relating to controls on cross-border movements and extradition measures on the frontier between Persia [Iran] and India (specifically British Baluchistan, part of present-day Pakistan), discussed between the British Government, Government of India, and Persian Government. The papers refer to a number of cross-border incidents, including murders and robbery committed in Persian territory, in which the perpetrators subsequently absconded into British Baluchistan. The papers include British protests to the Persian Government, in response to incursions by Persian levies into British territories, and correspondence exchanged between British officials, indicating a reluctance to sign an extradition treaty with Persia.
The file’s principal correspondents include: the British Legation at Tehran (Robert Henry Clive; Reginald Hervey Hoare; Charles Dodd); representatives of the Persian Government, including the Minister for Foreign Affairs (Mirza Mohamed Ali Khan Feroughi); the British Consul at Sistan and Kain [Ka’īn] (Major Clive Kirkpatrick Daly); the Governor General and Chief Commissioner in Baluchistan (Alexander Norman Ley Cater); the Foreign Secretary to the Government of India (Evelyn Berkeley Howell).
