Nirav Modi Can Be Extradited To India, Says UK Court; Verdict Comes Two Years After Arrest

INDIA Team Latestly|

A UK court on February 25 ordered the extradition of fugitive jeweller Nirav Modi wanted by the Central Bureau of Investigation & the Enforcement Directorate in the over Rs 13,600-crore bank loan fraud case, to India. UK Court delivered the verdict holding that the evidence against Modi was prima facie sufficient to order his extradition to India to face the charges. The Court also upheld the assurances of the Indian government & rejected the submissions of defence regarding human rights violations, fair trial & prison conditions. The court, however, said Modi would have the right to appeal to the High Court against the decision to send the case to the Secretary of State. Reports suggest that as now the court has cleared the extradition, the UK government would likely move in favour of India’s request. While hearing arguments on whether Modi would get a fair trial, the court also examined retired Justice Markandey Katju’s submissions in defence of Modi only to reject it finally.
