South Africa has asked Interpol to help arrest some members of the Gupta family who have been linked to corruption allegations during the presidency of Jacob Zuma.
Those allegations were at the centre of a scandal known in South Africa as State Capture.
Gupta family members were accused of briefing politicians to advance their business.
The Gupta have repeatedly denied wrongdoing.
They are wanted in connection with a procurement fraud scheme amounting to one point eight million dollars involving the diversion of money earmarked for rural development.
The Gupta family members are reportedly living in the United Arab Emirates.
