  • Nirav also expressed fear of suicide

Nirav Modi Extradition: Diamond trader Nirav Modi, wanted in the PNB scam, is now scared to return to India. Nirav tells his psychiatrist that if he is handed over to India, he will either commit suicide or he will be killed there. He said that after all I have to stay in jail, then why should I not stay here. In February, Nirav Modi was allowed to be handed over to India by the Westminster Court of Britain. Let us inform that Nirav Modi along with Mehul Choksi is accused of cheating Punjab National Bank (PNB) to the tune of Rs 14500 crore. Nirav Modi has appealed in the High Court against his extradition to India in the case. Responding to Nirav’s appeal, the London High Court said that India is a friendly country and Britain has full faith in the Indian government. After being brought to India, Nirav will be kept in Barrack No-12 of Arthur Road Jail. He has been told by the UK High Court that India has assured him of adequate medical care.

Nirav’s lawyer told the threat to his client’s life in India

Nirav’s lawyer told the High Court that his depression would get worse if he was sent to the “unfavourable environment” of India. Politicians in India have already projected him as a “bad person” by declaring him a criminal. At the same time, the press has shown “acrimonious” attitude towards him and people have “burned his effigies”. Judge Jeremy Stuart-Smith told defense attorney Edward Fitzgerald: “The Indian government’s assurances should reasonably be looked at and should not be flawed.” “Your client may feel that assurances are not enough, but we should take a positive approach,” he added.

We have to send Nirav to India under India-UK extradition treaty – London High Court

Judge Robert J. Said that India is a “friendly country” in terms of the India-UK Extradition Treaty signed in 1992 and that we must comply with our obligations relating to the treaty. Fitzgerald said he took a serious look at the assurances and found that while the judiciary in India is independent, the executive does not always follow the rule of law. “It is not that there is a long history of full cooperation, there have been cases where the court found that the respondent should not be extradited to India,” he said. Prosecution lawyer Helen Malcolm, appearing for the Government of India, said, “This is a very hot matter in India and there will be a lot of eyes on the Government of India, Nirav Modi’s care.”
