Assistance is also been sought from some European countries including France, United Kingdom, and Belgium to trace and restrict Nirav’s movements. The Enforcement Directorate has already issued a non-bailable warrant against Nirav Modi who is reported to be in the United Kingdom.

Businessmen Nirav Modi along with his Uncle Mehul Choksi is been accused of cheating the Punjab National Bank to the tune of USD 2 billion, with the purported involvement of a few employees of the bank.
