If a Russian hacker hacks a computer system in India, can India seek Interpol's help to get that hacker extradited to India?

I mean, does Russia allow extradition of Russian nationals to other countries like India, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka?


The Russian Constitution Article 61(1) prohibits this, stating "The citizen of the Russian Federation may not be deported out of Russia or extradited to another state".

  • How can a country like India apprehend that hacker? – user10806 Feb 5 '17 at 1:31
  • Well, if the person is outside of Russia and is taken into custody... When he is in-country, unless Russia prosecutes him for violating Russian law, there is no legal recourse. – user6726 Feb 5 '17 at 1:35
