JOHANNESBURG - The Gupta brothers deny they are fugitives from justice after law enforcement authorities declared Ajay Gupta a fugitive for failing to appear in court for corruption linked to the Estina Dairy Farm project. 

The family's lawyer called the announcement by police "malicious, misleading and simply incorrect".

The lawyer has demanded police provide an arrest warrant for Ajay Gupta. 

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) earlier said no formal extradition request had been made for alleged state capture fugitive Gupta, following reports that he is in India.
