India seeks Nirav Modi’s extradition from UK in PNB fraud case


India has sought the extradition of fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi from United Kingdom, with a formal request being routed to the UK government through the Indian High Commission in London.

In a written reply, Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh informed the Rajya Sabha on Thursday that the request has been sent by a Special Diplomatic Bag to the High Commission of India, London for
onward transmission to the UK authorities.

Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi are both accused of defrauding Punjab National Bank of about Rs 14,000 crore, seen as the biggest ever banking fraud in the country.
