Soon after United Kingdom confirmed fugitive Nirav Modi’s presence in their country, the Central Bureau of Investigation filed an application seeking his extradition. The moment UK authorities confirmed India about Modi’s presence, the CBI sent a request through the Union Home and External Affairs Ministry.
As per reports, an official said, “We have also sent a copy of the Interpol Red Notice issued against Mr Modi, seeking his immediate detention and intimidation.”
Modi, who’s the prime accused in the ₹13,578-crore Punjab National Bank fraud case, had fled the country in the first week of January in 2018 days before CBI registered a case against him.
