Nirav Modi flees to London, seeks political asylum

The FT reported that Modi is in London to claim asylum from what he calls as political persecution. The report while citing officials from the Ministry of External Affairs said that they were waiting for the law enforcement agencies to approach them before seeking extradition. The centre is already seeking extradition of Vijay Mallya who is also in the UK.

The police filed charges against several persons in May including Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi. Both have denied any wrong doing. Last month several executives of the ban were named in the chargesheet. They were charged with misleading the RBI in 2016.
