PNB scam: Fugitive Nirav Modi to be brought to India, London court approves

National Desk: Nirav Modi, a diamond businessman who scammed over 14,000 crore rupees in Punjab National Bank along with his maternal uncle Mehul Choksi, has suffered a major setback in the British court. Nirav Modi has lost his case against extradition to India. A UK judge ruled that he could be sent to India to face charges of forgery and money laundering in a case involving fraud of nearly two billion dollars from Punjab National Bank (PNB). The ruling was delivered by District Judge Samuel Gooji at the Westminster Magistrate's Court in London. Nirav Modi (49) attended the hearing via video conference from Wandsworth Jail in South West London.

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. The court said that there is a case in India against Nirav Modi which he has to answer. The court said in its judgment that Nirav Modi conspired to destroy evidence and intimidate witnesses.

The court also said that Nirav Modi would be provided with proper medical treatment and mental health care at Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai. Nirav challenged the extradition order against him in the court. On Thursday, after a two-year-long legal battle, District Judge Samuel Gooji ruled that there is a legal case against Nirav in which he should appear in an Indian court.

Nirav Modi is currently lodged in a London jail. Modi (49) is expected to appear in Westminster magistrate court in South West London via Wandsworth Jail, where District Judge Samuel Gooji will give his verdict that the diamond businessman has a case to appear before Indian courts Or not. The decision of the magistrate's court will then be sent to Britain's Home Minister Preeti Patel for signature. However, on the basis of the verdict, either side is also likely to do so in the High Court. Nirav Modi was arrested on 19 March 2019 on an extradition warrant and during several hearings in connection with the extradition case he was involved via video link from Wandsworth Jail. Many of his attempts to bail have been dismissed in the magistrate court and the high court as he is at risk of absconding. 


Mamta's attack on Modi, said- BJP brought outsiders for election campaign, which increases Corona cases

Mamta's attack on Modi, said- BJP brought outsiders for election campaign, which increases Corona cases

National Desk; West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that the BJP brought a large number of outsiders in the campaigning for the Assembly elections, leading to an increase in Kovid cases in the state in recent times. At an election rally here, Mamta accused the BJP-led government at the Center of not responding to the state's request for vaccination of most people. He said that vaccinating people can help in overcoming the spread of the disease. 

Mamta said in the rally, they (BJP leaders) have brought outsiders for campaigning, which increased the Kovid cases. We had overcome the Kovid situation but they made it complicated. Regarding the decision of the Election Commission to ban election campaigning for 24 hours, he said, is it a mistake to ask Hindus, Muslims and others to vote together? What to say about Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is making fun of me in every election meeting? Why was he not prevented from campaigning?

Accusing Prime Minister Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah of lying in election rallies, Trinamool Congress chief Mamta said, the Center has kept the NRC and NPR Bills alive, but the Home Minister had claimed in a gathering that the National Civil Register They have no plans to implement. Mamta said, do not believe them. If they come to power, you too may experience 14 lakh Bengalis in Assam (in the context of the last NRC in the northeast state). The BJP is a dangerous party that is trying to divide Bengal.
