Nirav Modi interviewed on London road

India’s fugitive billionaire Nirav Modi found in London living lavishly in plain sight

Fugitive billionaire Nirav Modi wanted in Rs. 14,000 crore Punjab National Bank scam case, being spotted in London, is a shot in the arm for the opposition which slammed the Centre for its "failure" to bring back the accused to justice while he apparently thrived elsewhere.

He added that Prime Minister Modi was making it possible for such "fraudsters" to loot and run away. Choksi was granted citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda on January 15, 2018, while Modi is in London.

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.

The ED and the CBI are investigating Modi, his uncle Mehul Choksi and others for alleged money laundering and corruption to perpetrate the alleged scam in the Brady House branch of the PNB in Mumbai that was unearthed past year.

On Friday, the PNB scam accused's bungalow in Alibag at Raigad district in India was demolished by the authorities on orders of the Bombay High Court for violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.

"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.

Modi and Choksi, who have both denied wrongdoing, left India before the details of the fraud became public.

The statements by ED and MEA come a day after a Britain-based newspaper claimed that Modi is living in an eight-million-pound apartment in the London's West End.
