Copy of a letter No.727, aatoa the I4th SepLenher 1951,
irom His Majesty's Offg. Consul at Kerman to the Deputy
Secretary to the Government of Inula, in the Foreign and
Political Department, Simla.
Proposed extradition Agreement hetvieen Persi
and India.
I have the honour to aclcnowieage the recemt of oapers on
trie above subject forwarded with your letter No .F.337-N/30
dated the ICth June 1931,ana after giving the matter aue
consideration in its various aspects bog to observe what follows<~
2 . I am in full agreement with trie views expressed by His
majesty's iate Kinister at Tehran, in his despatch No.124 of
the 19th hay last,especially those in paragraph 6 thereof,and
venture to opine that no definite advantage would be gained by
such a treaty at the present juncuure in Persian affairs.
Further,that the conclusion of a Treaty confining its
scope of operation to frontier districts could hardly serve
any advantage as far as the Government of India were concerned.
Such a Treaty,it is added, would chiefly apply to Persian
subjects passing the frontier into British territory,as the
number of British subjects crossing the frontier from British
territory can hardly be said to be very numerous.
The interference with Baluchis emigrating from Persian
territory into British India,it might be added,would give
umbrage to theiijnumerous relaGives across the border.
If however it is proposed to conclude a Treaty of univer
sal application, it might be of use to the Iruian Governm.-nt
in securing the extradition of individuals required by our
Courts in India for Criminal offences,although at the s-am
time it would be no difficult task for the Persian Government

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).
