Fugitive Nirav Modi, wanted in India over the Rs 12000 crore bank scam, could be arrested soon as a London court has issued a warrant against him. London-based The Telegraph had recently unearthed him in the city.
Sources say Nirav Modi, 48, can be arrested anytime in the next few days following the Enforcement Directorate’s request for his extradition in August 2018. UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid signed on the extradition request.
His arrest will enable the start of a trial against him in the Westminster court. If the court decides, London will issue an order to extradite him to India. The order can be challenged by Nirav Modi.
