Nirav Modi's remand extended for next extradition hearing on November 3

Fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi was on Friday further remanded in custody during a routine call-over hearing held via videolink at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London. The 49-year-old jeweller, wanted in India on charges of fraud and money laundering in the estimated USD 2-billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam case, is expected to appear again via videolink from his prison in south-west London for the next scheduled hearing in his ongoing extradition trial on November 3.

“I am adjourning the case for the next hearing on November 3 in the extradition case that has been part heard,” said District Judge Karim Ezzat. At the next hearing, the court will be presented with arguments to determine the admissibility of the evidence provided by the Indian authorities.
