Nirav Modi’s extradition trail to begin in London today
The five-day extradition trial of fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi will begin on Monday. The extradition trial will be set in a part-remote setting amidst the restrictions and social distancing measures put in place to contain the COVID-19. Modi is fighting his extradition to India over the nearly USD 2 billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud and money laundering case. Nirav Modi was arrested in March 2019.
