ED moves Interpol for issuance of Red Corner Notice against Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi in 12,636 cr rupees PNB scam

The Enforcement Directorate has moved to Interpol for the issuance of a Red Corner Notice against diamond traders Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi in connection with the over Rs 12,000 crore PNB scam. Both are accused on charges of money laundering and have been stated by probe agencies to have left India before criminal charges were pressed against them. The CBI too is probing the case. 

The Enforcement Directorate had sought issuance of the Interpol warrant against diamond traders Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi, based on court-issued non-bailable warrants obtained by it in a money laundering case. 

According to officials, ED is understood to have sent the request to the CBI for taking it up with the Interpol headquarters in Lyon, France. Once the Notice is issued, the Interpol seeks to arrest the person concerned in any part of the world and notifies that country to take his or her custody for further action at their end. 

A special court in Mumbai had issued non-bailable warrants early this month on the request of the Enforcement Directorate. The ED had earlier issued summonses to both the key accused in the scam, asking them to appear before it in Mumbai. However, both of them expressed their inability to depose citing business engagements.
