PI ease refer to your demi-official letter Ho.
P.Z.7264/32* dated the 6th January 1933, asking for the
Government of India’s views as to the kind of action which
might he taken on the Perso-Baluch frontier in regard to
fugitives from justice and other refugees.
2. After consulting the ASent to the Governor General
in Baluchistan, the Government of India are of opinion that
the proposal mooted by Hoare in his deni-official letter to
Howell of the 28th Decanter 19 31 (a copy of which was sent to
you by the Foreign Office) should be dropped since they can
see no difference in effect between the procedure there
suggested and extradition by virtue of an extradition treaty.
As it seems to them the most that could be offered to the
Persian Government in the absence of an extradition treaty
would be to disai^i and remove from the vicinity of the border
criminals and other refugees whose residence in that vicinity
is likely to disturb the peace of the border or create trouble
for the Persian Government. Requests by Persia for the
surrender of ordinary criminals like Lashk a r Khan a nd Kh a n
Mohd should they consider be refused as is done in the case

Hi s Maj esty f s Mini ster,
Tehran, to Government of
India, Ho. 268 dated the 27 th
December 1932 - copy sent to
Foreign Office (Ho. 550).

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).
