Maldives police have confirmed that India has refused entry for former Vice President Ahmed Adeeb on Thursday, August 1 and he was taken to a Maldives detention center after being returned to the country.

Adeeb was arrested after fleeing to India to avoid questioning over the alleged embezzlement of state funds and was brought to Male, the Maldives Capital, late on Sunday night in a navy ship and immediately taken to the Dhoonidhoo detention center.

Adeeb who was recently freed from a 33-year jail sentence over corruption and terrorism, has had his passport confiscated by court order because of pending court cases.
