In a pink shirt topped with a $10,000 jacket and sporting a handlebar moustache, Nirav Modi was seen evading questions in the video as he was pressed asked about his extradition case in India. Mr Choksi holds a citizenship of Antigua and Barbuda.

The Daily Telegraph on Saturday released a video showing a different-looking Modi on the streets of London, where he has had a diamond store since 2014, when his company - Nirav Modi Limited - was registered with the registrar of companies.

The Telegraph report further stated that Nirav Modi, against whom a Red Corner Notice has been issued by the Interpol, is living in the city's West End area and has even started a new diamond business.

British officials said that as a matter of long-standing policy and practice, the United Kingdom will neither confirm nor deny that an extradition request has been made or received until an arrest has been made in relation to the request.

Bisaria had been summoned to New Delhi a day after the Pulwama attack in which over 40 Indian paramilitary soldiers were killed. Kashmir has been split between India and Pakistan since their independence and angry division in 1947.


According to CBI, Diamond merchant Nirav Modi wanted for allegedly defrauding the Punjab National Bank (PNB) of over Rs 13,000 crore, left India with his family on January 1, 2018.

Modi fled India past year, days before it emerged that the companies linked to the jeweller and his relatives received credit worth close to Rs 14,000-crore between 2011 and 2017 using false guarantees supplied by two officials of the Punjab National Bank.

Modi is the subject of an Interpol red notice since July previous year, which is a request to locate and arrest a wanted individual pending extradition proceedings.

The daily "The Telegraph" from London on Saturday has published an exclusive report on Nirav Modi being spotted in London. Indian government sources and other top sources have told TOI that Modi is believed to have undergone plastic surgery in London in a bid to escape extradition.

His lawyers last month said they were conducting a thorough investigation for the purposes of mounting a defence of the actor. He also said that the men "poured an unknown chemical substance on him" and that one man wrapped a rope around his neck.


Nirav's life as a free businessman in London is set to create some tension between India and Britain, where another fugitive Indian tycoon, Vijay Mallya, is fighting an extradition attempt.

Though Modi's bank accounts in India have been frozen and an Interpol red notice has been issued against him, the fugitive has become involved in a new diamond business in Soho locality, the daily said.

Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, who are wanted in India for loan default, fled the country in the first week of January previous year after their companies were found cheating the state-run PNB of Rs 14,000 crore. He has also been in contact with a wealth management company based in west London, which specialises in advice to rich foreigners.
