The decision came on Thursday on the extradition of fugitive diamond trader Nirav Modi. Nirav will have to come to India now. Starting the hearing of the case, the court said that I have accepted all the evidence presented by the Government of India. I am satisfied that there is evidence that Nirav Modi can be blamed.
Judge Samuel Goji said that it is perfectly clear that Nirav Modi has many questions to answer in India. The judge also said that many of the interactions given by Nirav Modi do not match. It also said that there is no evidence that if they are extradited, justice will not be done to them.
The court also said that there was an attempt to threaten the witnesses. The court expressed satisfaction about the condition of jails in India.
The hearing of Nirav Modi’s extradition case has been completed in the Westminster Magistrate Court of Britain. It is expected that he can be sent to India in the Rs 13,000 crore bank fraud case. The court had set the date for February 25 during the hearing last month to send him to India.
During the hearing last month, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), representing Indian investigative agencies, told a UK court that Nirav Modi was involved in a “Ponzi-like scheme” and was responsible for money laundering and fraud, ie This led to a massive fraud with the Punjab National Bank (PNB).
