Mumbai: The Interpol issued a red corner notice (RCN) against fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi in connection with the Rs 13,000-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case.
The Interpol has also issued red corner notice against Nirav Modi’s brother Nishal Modi and his company’s executive Subhash Parab in the PNB scam, news agency ANI reported.
This comes after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) requested the Interpol to issue the notice against Nirav, who is wanted in India in the money laundering case.
A red corner notice issued by Interpol urges its member countries to detain or arrest an accused, who is wanted in a country.
Nirav, who is at the centre of the multi-crore bank fraud, is reportedly in the UK and needs to be extradited as non-bailable warrants (NBW) are already issued against him.
The Interpol has put out Nirav Modi’s photo and has shared his age and other details on its website.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had approached Interpol last month seeking issuance of RCN against Nirav Modi.
Quoting sources news agency PTI had earlier reported that the international agency was satisfied with the documents provided by the CBI which is probing the USD 2 billion scam.
The records the CBI provided to the Interpol included the non-bailable warrants issued by a Mumbai special court and the details of the charge sheets filed in the case etc. The documents were found in order and have satisfied the Lyon-based international police cooperation agency which is “processing” the CBI’s request, they said.
