CBI prepares RCN against Modi, Choksi in PNB fraud case
The Central Bureau of Investigation is preparing a request to the Interpol to issue a red corner notice against Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi in connection with the PNB fraud case.
The notice is being prepared after the CBI filed a chargesheet in connection with the case.
The red corner notice will help the agency expedite the extradition process against the duo who left the country a few months back. The process for getting the RCN issued against the duo has already been initiated, sources told OneIndia.
The CBI last week filed its first chargesheet in the alleged Rs 13,400 crore PNB fraud case involving Modi and his uncle Choksi. In the chargesheet, the agency detailed the role of the bank's former chief Usha Ananthasubram-anian, who is now Allahabad Bank CEO and MD.
The CBI chargesheet, filed in Mumbai sessions court, also named several other top officials of the bank, including PNB executive directors K.V. Brahmaji Rao and Sanjiv Sharan, and general manager (international operations) Nehal Ahad.
