New Delhi, July 16: In a bid to tighten the noose around fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi, who is wanted in India in connection with multi-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case, a three-member Enforcement Directorate (ED) team has reached Singapore.
“Our team is in Singapore to ready the case against Nirav Modi,” a highly placed ED source told IANS.
The team is scheduled to meet the authorities in Singapore to present India’s case.
The visit follows the case it registered against Nirav Modi earlier this year following three different cases filed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Most of the accused are common to the cases.
On Wednesday, the ED moved a special court in Mumbai seeking to declare Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi as fugitives as they fled from India a month before they were named in the fraud case.
On July 2, the Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice against Nirav Modi.
Nirav Modi left India along with his family in the first week of January, weeks before the scam was unearthed and reported to the CBI. His wife Ami, a US citizen, left on January 6 and Choksi on January 4.
