I know zilch about law in India. Based on US law, it sounds to me like he has a "false arrest" lawsuit, as a civil tort.

Yes Ros - Adani certainly seems to have controls at Australian federal level, getting tax payers' money to cover costs so as to protect against probable losses ..

Thanks remember this outspoken Greens Senator (notice the Former) in the title she was forced to resign recently over a dual-citizen debarcle.

This is what the Queensland Government has offered Adani...... in return for the mine going ahead
