India waiting for UK reply after fugitive Nirav Modi's video surfaces

India waiting for UK reply after fugitive Nirav Modi's video surfaces

While slightly altering his appearance with a handlebar mustache, the man has been recorded strolling to and from his new business office in Soho, which specializes in the diamond trade.

"The fact that we have requested the United Kingdom government for extradition of Nirav Modi, means we know he lives there", Kumar said in response to a question about the Telegraph report.

A spokesman for India's foreign ministry said the government knew that Modi was in London. The report added that he was wearing a jacket made from "Ostrich hide", which costs "at least £10,000" (over Rs 9 lakh).

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. The rent of the apartment is estimated to be around 17,000 pounds a month.

His response comes hours after the news of fugitive billionaire diamantaire Nirav Modi, accused in the $2 billion PNB fraud case, living openly in a swanky 8-million pound apartment in London's West End was reported by The Telegraph. Modi repeatedly answered "no comment" to questions put to him.

Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, who are wanted in India for loan default, fled the country in the first week of January a year ago after their companies were found cheating the state-run PNB of Rs 14,000 crore.

Non-bailable warrants were issued against Nirav Modi and Choksi.

Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi had fled India after being accused of defrauding the Punjab National Bank for Rs 13,000 crore in January previous year.

A British daily reported that Modi, accused in the United States dollars 2-billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, is living in a swanky 8-million pound apartment in London's West End and is now involved in a new diamond business.

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.

"The business, which was incorporated last May, is linked to his flat in Centre Point although he is not listed as a director at Companies House", the Telegraph reported, wondering how Modi's presence remained unnoticed by the British authorities.

The Home Office have been contacted for comment.

The Telegraph report said it was not clear why the British government had given him a National Insurance number to Nirav.

The tycoon continued to remain at large even after Interpol issued a red notice for his arrest on the request of the Indian authorities in July 2018.
