  • Nirav Modi interviewed on London road

The remarks come after the Indian government stated earlier in the day that they are aware of the report that Nirav Modi is in London and they have already sent a request for his extradition to the United Kingdom government.

This is despite Interpol's red notice serving as a request for the British government to find Modi and arrest him ahead of an extradition. "It (extradition request) is under their (UK Govt) consideration", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said at a media briefing.

In July past year, the worldwide police agency Interpol issued a Red Notice for Nirav's arrest following India's request. A video released by a British daily shows Nirav Modi, the prime accused in the multi-crore PNB fraud, living in a luxury flat near Oxford Street and has reportedly started a new diamond business in Soho.

The ED and the CBI are investigating Modi, his uncle Mehul Choksi and others for alleged money laundering and corruption to perpetrate the alleged scam in the Brady House branch of the PNB in Mumbai that was unearthed a year ago.




Nirav's life as a free businessman in London is set to create some tension between India and Britain, where another fugitive Indian tycoon, Vijay Mallya, is fighting an extradition attempt. Also, an Interpol "red corner" arrest warrant was issued against Nirav Modi on the ED's request, who along with his family as well as uncle Choksi left the country in January, a month before the fraud came to light. "The UK Central Authority of Home Office has confirmed that the extradition request has been sent to the Westminster Magistrate Court for the district judge for further proceedings", the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said in a tweet.

The fugitive diamond merchant, who has been on the run since February 2018, has been found to be doing diamond business in one of the best and high-end markets of London despite India's efforts to bring him back.

The Telegraph wrote: "Modi appears to have adopted a surprisingly nonchalant attitude to his fugitive status, walking his small dog each day between his apartment and the diamond company's office in a town house in Soho, just a few hundred yards from his Centre Point home".

In a video posted by the newspaper, Modi can be seen sporting a handle-bar moustache and wearing an Ostrich Hide jacket, estimated to cost 10,000 pounds. National insurance numbers are required to legally work in the UK. Modi repeatedly answered "no comment" to questions put to him.
