New Delhi, Feb 20 : A four-member team of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) left for Male Wednesday to "engage with all stakeholders" following the second arrest warrant issued against former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed, who is staying in the Indian High Commission since Feb 13.

"A four-member team has gone. It is basically to engage with all the stakeholders and understand the situation and all the issues involved with all the court cases," an official source told IANS.

The team is headed by Harsh Vardhan Shringla, joint secretary in-charge of the Maldives in the external affairs ministry.

A Maldivian court Monday issued a second arrest warrant for Nasheed.

The Hulhumale magistrate court issued the new warrant ordering police to present Nasheed in the court Feb 20 at 4 p.m, an official from the Judiciary Media Unity told MinivanNews.
