If reports are believed to be true, fugitive businessman Nirav Modi might end up in Barrack Number 12 of the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, if and when he is extradited to India. Meanwhile, this is the same barrack that is supposed to house absconding liquor baron Vijay Mallya, once he is brought back to India. 

Currently, India is trying to extradite the two from the United Kingdom since both the fugitive businessmen are in London. While Mallya is out on bail, Modi is imprisoned at Her Majesty's Prison Wandsworth.

In the meantime, the Maharashtra prison department has reportedly informed the state home affairs department about the facilities that can be provided to Modi if he is lodged at Arthur Road jail. Accordingly, the prison department assured that Modi will be placed in a cell where the number of other prisoners is not more than three.

As per a home department official, the barrack is heavily guarded and there has been no incident of torture or ill-treatment. 

Arthur Road Jail has been a house to some of the most notorious criminals from the underworld and terror outfits consisting of names like 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab, Abu Salem, Chota Rajan, Mustafa Dossa, Peter Mukerjea, and PNB-fraud accused Vipul Ambani.
