India has put forth some suggestions before the international community to ensure that people "who commit economic offences, those who are fugitives... Should not get any sanctuary anywhere in the world", PM Narendra  Modi said while addressing the 'Jagran Forum' organised by the Dainik Jagran media group here on Friday. The government is working to bring back people, including Vijay Mallya, Mehul Choksi and Nirav Modi, for their alleged involvement in bank scams.
