Interpol notice against Nirav Modi’s brother in PNB fraud case

The Interpol has placed the Red Corner Notice against fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi’s brother Nehal in public view again, after he recently lost an appeal against its issuance by the international police cooperation body last year, on the request of Indian agencies, officials said.

A Belgian citizen, Nehal Deepak Modi is wanted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in a case of alleged fraud committed by his elder brother, Nirav, in the Punjab National Bank (PNB), they added.

Nehal Modi’s name figured as the accused number 27 in the supplementary charge sheet filed by the CBI, which charged him for destroying evidence in Dubai to cover the tracks of the alleged crime, the officials said.

An RCN is a request to law-enforcement agencies worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action.Nehal Modi challenged it before the Commission for Control of Interpol’s Files (CCF), an independent body that ensures that all personal data processed through Interpol’s channels conforms to the rules of the organisation.
