The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) began the process of filing an extradition request for Nirav Modi in June itself. This would now have to be approved by the UK Home Office following which an extradition warrant can be issued.

According to information available in the UK, Nirav Modi - wanted in India for an alleged Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud - arrived in London earlier this year on an Indian passport.

A non-bailable warrant was issued against Nirav Modi and 10 other accused, including his family members, in the PNB fraud case following a chargesheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) last month. The businessman is believed to have left India with his family around a month before the PNB filed its first complaint with the CBI at the beginning of this year.
