The judges further ruled Wednesday: “Bombay Police instead of protecting the rights of these foreign nationals filed a case against them and the charges are baseless.”

It was also held that “Article 21 of the Constitution-right to liberty and life – applies to all citizens whether Indian or foreign nationals.”

The Ugandans’ lawyers had argued that his clients were detained and passports seized after their passports were taken away.

The accused were picked up from Trident Hotel and booked under sections 384 (extortion), 120 (b) (criminal conspiracy), and 441 (criminal trespass) of the Indian Penal Code.

But the trio managed to leave Mumbai for Delhi and filed a special leave petition in the Supreme Court there, alleging that their detention was illegal.

The apex court then asked the Mumbai police to file a reply in the matter.

In 2009, Videocon had invested in a mining business in Uganda, but wrapped it up without any prior notice to investors.

Musumba and his colleagues claimed he had an international arrest warrant against the directors.

They also claimed that they had come to Mumbai for settlement and sought $20 million from Videocon.
