Interpol issues Red Corner notice against Nirav Modi’s wife
The Interpol has issued a Red Corner notice against the wife of Nirav Modi, who is the key accused in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case to the tune of over Rs 13,000 crore.
It has come to light that the notice has been issued in connection with the money laundering case against Ami Modi in India.
The Interpol defines a Red Notice as a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.
Ami Modi had earlier left India along with Nirav Modi and other family members in the first week of January 2018, just a month before the PNB scam was discovered by authorities.
It may be noted that Ami Modi was a director in a few companies which Nirav Modi allegedly used as fronts to launder money.
She was earlier accused in the PNB money-laundering case by the ED in March last year.
Nirav Modi was arrested by the Scotland Yard authorities in London last year after he was declared an economic fugitive offender under law.
Modi is currently fighting an extradition case in the UK, where a court has remanded him to custody till August 27. Nirav Modi has been lodged at the Wandsworth Prison in London.
