How Twitter Reacted to Nirav Modi's Rs 9 Lakh Ostrich Leather Jacket

Nirav Modi

The government can not extradite Nirav Modi just because he has been spotted in London, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Spokesperson, Raveesh Kumar, told ANI in an interview.

Security guards stand inside a Nirav Modi showroom during a raid by the Enforcement Directorate, a government agency that fights financial crime, in New Delhi, India, February 15, 2018.

While the Indian government is trying tooth and nail to capture the fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi, he appeared to be living and roaming freely in the UK's capital city London in a slightly new avatar. However, the billionaire businessman's tryst with London's cabbies has become a butt of jokes on social media.

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.

Modi, 48, is now living in a three-bedroom flat occupying half of a floor of the landmark Centre Point tower block, where rent is estimated to cost 17,000 pounds a month, as per the British Daily report.

"Request for extradition of Nirav Modi to India was sent in July 2018 to the UK". Nirav Modi is accused of defrauding the state-owned Punjab National Bank (PNB) with over Rs 13,700 crore. Mr Choksi holds a citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda.

U.S. trade deficit hits 10-year high despite tariff war
One is that USA companies have stocked up on some imported goods to beat the tariffs, which increases imports in the short run. It is, by and large, an accounting measure that often moves in directions inverse to the health of the United States economy.

On Friday, the PNB scam accused's bungalow in Alibag at Raigad district in India was demolished by the authorities on orders of the Bombay High Court for violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.

"Just because Nirav Modi has been spotted doesn't mean he will be brought back immediately", Raveesh Kumar, a spokesman for India's foreign affairs ministry said, adding that it was waiting for the United Kingdom to respond. Modi has been able to operate online bank accounts in the United Kingdom, and is in touch with a wealth management company in West London.

The Telegraph's report, which included a video interview with the fugitive businessman, claimed that Nirav Modi had been given a Nation Insurance number, which allows him to work in the UK. "It is not clear why the British government has given him a national insurance number and yet has apparently failed to act on the Interpol red notice".

It has now approached the Interpol for a Red Corner Notice aimed at bringing Nirav back for facing trial in the cases against them, the sources said.

According to UK-based newspaper reports, Nirav Modi has started a new diamond business in Soho.
