Nirav Modi, accused in PNB scam, spotted in £8 Million flat in London
London : Nirav Modi, fugitive businessman named in the multi-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, has been spotted in a £8 Million flat, reportedly indulging into a new diamond business.
According to a video and interview published by The UK Daily Telegraph, the fugitive diamantaire is currently residing in an £8 million flat near Oxford Street, London.
The report also mentioned that he started a new business near his apartment in May 2018.
“Nirav Modi appears to have adopted a surprisingly nonchalant attitude to his fugitive status, walking his small dog each day between his apartment and the diamond company’s office in a townhouse in Soho, just a few hundred yards from his Centre Point home,” a report by The Telegraph claimed.
Last month, Nirav Modi had released a statement claiming that he has not done anything wrong. He had said, “I’ve done nothing wrong.PNB scam was a civil transaction, blown out of proportion and can’t come back to the country due to security reasons.”
In June 2018, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had written to several European countries seeking help in tracing Nirav Modi.
