'Mumbai's Arthur Jail fit for him': Nirav Modi to be extradited to India to stand trial in PNB Scam
PNB scam: Prima facie case established against Nirav Modi, UK judge rules
A UK court on Thursday ordered the extradition of diamond merchant Nirav Modi to India to stand trial in the estimated USD 2-billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam case. After a nearly two-year-long legal battle, the court ruled that a prima facie case has been established against Modi as it dismissed the diamantaire's "mental health concerns" stating "they are not unusual in a man in his circumstances".
In the ruling, the judge said that Nirav Modi had conspired to destroy evidence and intimidate witnesses.
