New Delhi, Feb. 23 (ANI): India on Monday expressed its concern over the recent developments in Maldives, including the arrest and alleged manhandling of its former president Mohamed Nasheed.

"The Government of India reiterates its commitment to supporting the people and the government of Maldives in their quest for peace, development, prosperity and democracy," Ministry of External Affairs official spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin told ANI.

"We urge all concerned to calm the situation and resolve their differences within the constitutional and legal framework of Maldives," he added.

On Sunday, Nasheed was arrested under his nation's anti-terrorism laws for allegedly ordering the arrest a senior judge in 2012. The former president was then reportedly dragged by security forces to be presented before court.
