Facilitating young minds towards holistic development.
Ordinarily each states exercises complete jurisdiction over all the persons within its territory. But sometimes there may be cases when a person after committing a crime runs away to another country. In such situations, country affected finds itself helpless to exercise jurisdiction to punish the guilty person. This situation is very detrimental to peace and order. In such a situation peace and cooperation can only be obtained when there is international cooperation between the states. There is a social need to punish such criminals and in order to fulfill this goal, the principle of Extradition has been recognized.
