United Kingdom home secy sent Nirav's extradition request to court

April FrancisMar 10, 2019

Separately, he is being sued in the State of California for defrauding 4.2 million dollars from Los Angeles entrepreneur Paul Alfonso; in October 2018, Modi sold two custom diamond engagement rings to Alfonso that turned out to be lab diamonds.

Fugitive billionaire Nirav Modi wanted in Rs. 14,000 crore Punjab National Bank scam case, being spotted in London, is a shot in the arm for the opposition which slammed the Centre for its "failure" to bring back the accused to justice while he apparently thrived elsewhere. We have been aware of his presence in UK.

NiMo is said to have worn an ostrich hide jacket in the video, which reportedly costs Rs 9 lakh rupees.

LONDONBillionaire jeweller Nirav Modi, wanted in India over the Rs 13,700-crore PNB fraud, is living freely in London, where he is now involved in a new diamond business, British newspaper The Telegraph reported on Friday after confronting him in a busy street. The rent of the apartment is estimated to be around 17,000 pounds a month. The reporter finally followed him for some time and then asked him if he has applied for political asylum. The news of NiMo and Choksi fleeing India had come as a huge embarrassment since Modi was posing with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the World Economic Forum days before the PNB scam broke. While Nirav Modi is living in the United Kingdom, Mehul Choksi has become a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda.

According to The Telegraph, Nirav is now involved in a new diamond business run from an office in Soho, a few hundred yards from his new flat in West End.

US journalist reported freed in Venezuela
Neither Venezuela's public prosecutors office nor the armed forces press office responded to requests for comment about Weddle. Local 10 reported on Twitter that Weddle was questioned about a February 25 segment he had produced for them.

In July previous year, the global police agency Interpol issued a Red Notice for Nirav's arrest following India's request. He said India made the request for extradition to the United Kingdom knowing that Modi was living there.

The revelation comes a day after Modi's 30,000 sq ft seaside mansion at Kihim beach in Maharashtra's Raigad district was demolished by authorities using explosives for alleged violation of coastal regulation rules.

Nirav, the report revealed, takes a daily walk from his home to the office with his dog.

The Telegraph's report, which included a video interview with the fugitive businessman, claimed that Nirav Modi had been given a Nation Insurance number, which allows him to work in the UK.

The tycoon continued to remain at large even after Interpol issued a red notice for his arrest on the request of the Indian authorities in July 2018.
