The UK Central Authority of Home Office has confirmed the extradition request has been sent to the Westminster Magistrate Court for further proceedings. "We have made a request for extradition, it is for the United Kingdom government now to consider our request and respond to the demand of the CBI and ED for extradition", said the MEA spokesperson.

Nirav Modi, one of the prime accused in the multi-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam has been tracked down to London's West End where he has reportedly begun a new diamond business.

His remarks came after The Telegraph, a British newspaper, claimed that Modi has been spotted in London.

"The government is taking all necessary steps for his extradition", MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said at a media briefing. Despite whatever we see on television today, the "status remains the same", he added.

In the video, Nirav Modi wore a changed look - with a handlebar moustache and long hair. "In the last six months, we have not received any request for any other documents".

According to UK-based newspaper reports, Nirav Modi has started a new diamond business in Soho. When journalists from the paper questioned him on various issues, including whether he has urged Britain to grant him asylum, Modi ducked them by saying, "Sorry, no comments".

Indian intelligence agencies had provided inputs about the fugitive billionaire's new disguise. When asked by the reporter if he was still trading in diamonds under an alias, Modi refused comment.

On February 26, the Enforcement Directorate attached properties of Nirav Modi and his associate companies to the tune of Rs 147 crore in connection with its ongoing probe into the case.

The ED and the CBI are investigating Modi, his uncle Mehul Choksi and others for alleged money laundering and corruption to perpetrate the alleged scam in the Brady House branch of the PNB in Mumbai that was unearthed previous year.

The CBI registered an FIR against him on January 31 on the basis of a complaint against him and his uncle Choksi from the bank. It seems that Modiji is running Bank Fraudster Settlement Company. In late June past year, the Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice against him.

Modi and Choksi, who have both denied wrongdoing, left India before the details of the fraud became public.

The Punjab National Bank scam involves fraudulent transactions amounting to crores of rupees allegedly carried out by firms and individuals associated with Nirav Modi in connivance with some officials to defraud the financial institution by using unauthorised bank guarantees.
