Interpol issues red corner notice against Nirav Modi's sister

New Delhi: The Interpol has issued red corner notice issued against Purvi Modi, sister of absconding billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi, in connection with the alleged USD 2 billion PNB money-laundering case.

The Interpol had already issued a Red Corner Notice against Nirav Modi, his executive Mihir R Bhansali, while the case of red corner notice against fugitive billionaire Mehul Choksi will be taken up by an internal committee of the Interpol in October.

The ED, a central probe agency under the union finance ministry, is investigating if the allegedly defrauded bank funds were laundered and proceeds of crime were subsequently used by the accused to create illegal assets and black money.

Both Choksi and Modi left the country before criminal cases were lodged against them. They had denied any wrongdoing. Choksi is at present based in the Caribbean nation of Antigua and India has sought his extradition from that country.
