New Delhi, April 12: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the company Firestar Diamond to ask fugitive jeweller Nirav Modi to return to the country.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) told a bench of Justices S. Muralidhar and I.S. Mehta that Modi is a "fugitive from justice."
The court was hearing two pleas filed by fugitive jeweller Mehul Choksi's firm Gitanjali Gems and billionaire Nirav Modi's firm Firestar Diamond challenging the apparently illegal seizure of documents and articles by the probe agency in money laundering cases related to the multi-crore rupee Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam.
The court directed the Firestar Diamonds's lawyer Vijay Aggarwal to ask Nirav Modi to return to the country. Aggarwal responded that he is handling the matter related to company and he did not know Modi's whereabouts.
