Big Success in PNB Scam case : Fugitive Nirav Modi to be brought back to India

New Delhi, 25/2 (AO Bureau): India has got a huge success in the case of PNB Scam of Rs 14,000 crore with Punjab National Bank. The British Westminster Magistrate Court has ordered the extradition of Nirav Modi, the main accused in the case, to fugitive diamond trader Nirav Modi. The court held Nirav Modi guilty of conspiring to destroy evidence and intimidating witnesses, saying he had to answer on a case in India. Let us know that Nirav Modi was arrested by the Scotland Yard Police of Britain from London on 13 March 2019. He has since been lodged in Wandsworth Jail in South West London. Nirav challenged the extradition order against him in the court. After a two-year-long legal battle, District Judge Samuel Gooji ruled that there was a legal case against Nirav, in which he would have to appear in an Indian court.

When Nirav Modi’s lawyers claimed that he was mentally ill, District Judge Samuel Goji said that it does not seem so at all. Nirav Modi has not seen any problem in the court. Not only this, the court rejected the argument of not having facilities in the jail of India, and barrack number-12 of Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail was fit for Nirav Modi. He also said that he will get justice even after extraditing India. Now the matter will be sent to Britain’s Home Minister Preeti Patel for final approval of the court’s decision.
