cuit courts in New York
for more than four years.
Ordinarliy, the Deputy
Secretary of State -- at
present Charles W.
Robinson — would de-
termine an issue of ex-
tradition. In this case,
however, considering the
currently cool Indian-
U.S. governmental rela-
tions and the change in
the character of the gov-
ernment in New Delhi
towards authoritarian-
ism, Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger him-
self is expected to recom-
mend a decision for Pres-
ident Ford's considera-
tion.
State
Department
sources said that the issue
has not yet formally
reached the department.
The New Delhi gov-
ernment alleges that 15
years ago when Jhirad
was a co-administrator
of India's Naval Prize
Fund, he misapprop-
riated money to ineligible
recipients.
The Indian govern-
ment contends that when
Jhirad left India in July,
1966 for stays in Europe,
Israel and in America, it
was his intention never to
return out of fear of
prosecution. However,
charges were not filed
against him in India until
more than two years later
— in October, 1968.
The federal court in
New York held that while
his departure was not for
the purpose of avoiding
prosecution, the court
ruled that the last two
counts were still valid be-
cause the statute of limi-
tations still had two
weeks to run when Jhirad
allegedly decided not to
return.
In view of the Supreme
Court's refusal to review
the case, the defense coun-
sel indicated it would not
take further judicial action
on the extradition.
Claiming innocence on
all charges, Jhirad de-
clares the Indian gov-
ernment is politically
motivated against him.
The Indian govern-
ment, it is also said, has
never Shown proof any
money is missing nor
ever - produced a claim-
ant for that money. The
Navy has never made an
audit of the fund, named a
board of inquiry to
examine the charges, nor
offered proof of wrongdo-
ing by him, nor sent wit-
nesses to New York to
testify against him, the
defense claims. The wit-
nesses, according to the
defense, were from In-
dia's special police estab-
lishment. Jhirad has de-
nied destroying any re-
cords.
Jhirad, who is of the
Bene Israel Jews who
came to the Bombay area
before the destruction of
the Second Temple in
Jerusalem more than 1900
years ago, is ardently
Jewish. As a student at
Bombay University, he
organized Jewish students
there. In 1937, he visited

Pride goeth before de-
struction, and haughtiness
of spirit before a fall.
Proverbs

-Ok

Palestine at the invitation
of the Keren Hayesod. To-
gether with his father, he
aided Jewish refugees
from Germany and Poland
who received asylum in
India from the Nazis.
He also introduced
programs in India of the
Joint Distribution Com-
mittee and the Organiza-
tion for Rehabilitation
through Training (ORT)
which still operates
schools in Bombay. He
was in Israel from 1967 to
,mid-1972 when he came to
the United States. He and
his wife have applied for
U.S. citizenship.
