Investigation officials are very sure about that there will be no scope of delay in getting Indian fugitive businessman Nirav Modi repatriated to India as they presented the UK authorities all the essential legal documents needed and sealed every hole of let-out which can turn to account by the defence counsel. Potential sources told the media that their non-stop effort for the extradition of another fugitive business magnate -Vijay Mallya -made easier to be familiarized with the extradition procedure of European country.
According to the media sources, “ It was because of the evidence shared by the CBI and ED with the UK that the court got to know the full extent of the crime, and denied bail to Nirav Modi”.
The charge sheet of the scam of 13,000 crores in the Punjab National Bank has been lodged at his Majesty’s Prison Wandsworth in London. Until 29th March, he will remain there, while his scam case will be prosecuted for hearing again.
On the other side, the sources informed that India is not sure about sending a team of CBI and Enforcement Directorate jointly, for the 29th March hearing because they are waiting to receive a request for assistance in the case.
The probe agencies are now gathering the evidence together against other involved accused of the case, including a brother of Nirav Modi, Nishal and his sister Purvi, who are also taking shelter in London. The investigation agencies are also taking the potential moves to repatriate Nirav Modi’s uncle, Mehul Choksi from Antigua.
In the meantime, a correlated case against the Indian fugitive Nirav Modi will be prosecuted in the court of Mumbai and it is pointed at a money laundering case. The Enforcement Directorate is sure that the proceedings in the UK will assist him for getting him stamped as a “fugitive economic offender”.
After the arrest of the Indian fugitive, Nirav Modi in London Court issued an arrest warrant against him, in a response to a request by the Enforcement Directorate for his repatriation in a money laundering case.
