'No passport, can’t appear', diamantaire, Nirav Modi tells ED

By Vicky

The Enforcement Directorate has decided to issue fresh summons to diamantaire and PNB scam accused Nirav Modi. ED sources said that the decision was taken after he failed to appear before the agency despite a summons being issued.

Modi in an email reply to the ED said that he was unable to appear as his passport had been suspended. He also said that he had some pending business issues to sort out and hence could not make it to India.

Interestingly this was the same reply that former liquor baron, Vijay Mallya gave the ED when he was asked to appear before the agency. ED sources say that these persons could have approached the embassy and sought for a travel document. It is clear that they are giving these reasons to dodge investigations.

The ED has also summoned Nirav Modi's uncle, Mehul Choksi a co-accused in the scam. The ED says that they would issue a fresh summons if he fails to appear before the agency.
