The candidate for the future head of Interpol, Mubit Nawa of Zambia, is accused of involvement in the kidnapping, detention, assault and attempted extortion of two Indian businessmen.

Lawyers Vinod and Udit Sadhu have written to Interpol saying the allegations against Mubita Nava, Zambia's deputy police commissioner, indicate he is "manifestly unfit" to be the organization's next secretary-general, the Guardian reports.

Nawa, who is backed by African Union member states, is one of four shortlisted for the position of Interpol leader, and it is expected to be announced soon who will take over the post.
