Interpol has issued a red corner notice (RCN) against Purvi Modi, a Belgian national and absconding billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi’s sister, in connection with the alleged USD 2 billion PNB money laundering case, officials said Monday.
The 44-year-old speaks English, Gujarati and Hindi.
As per the procedure, after an RCN is issued, Interpol urges its 192 member countries to arrest the fugitive, paving way for their extradition process.
In July, similar notices were issued against Nirav Modi, his brother Nishal Modi and his company executive Subhash Parab in connection with the scam.
Nirav Modi and his uncle-cum-business-partner Mehul Choksi are accused of duping the PNB of nearly Rs 13,000 crore (USD 2 billion), with the purported involvement of a few employees of the bank.
