PNB Scam: Interpol puts out red corner notice against Nirav Modi

It seems, jeweler Nirav Modi will not be on the run for too long or take refuge in other countries, as the Interpol will be putting out a red corner notice. This will help officials in hunting and arresting Modi in any country.

The notice is the last bid to arrest Modi by asking other countries to help with tracking and arresting a wanted person. According to the Interpol, it is the closest instrument to an international arrest warrant.

A celebrity jeweler, Nirav Modi is wanted for ₹13,000-crore Punjab National Bank fraud in India. He is accused of extracting loans abroad based on fake guarantees in the name of the PNB, India's second-largest government bank.

Despite his passport being revoked by the government, Modi travelled to several countries. India had asked several European countries to help in tracing the jeweler. Along with this, the Foreign Ministry had also sent messages to all its missions abroad to get in touch with local governments to stop Nirav Modi from entering the countries and inform India if he was there.

Among the other accused, Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi are the main accused in the PNB loan fraud, who have been charged in nearly half-a-dozen cases.

Before the PNB bank could detect the fraud, the duo managed to leave the country in the first week of January.
