According to FT report, Nirav Modi is claiming "political persecution" in India and hence has urged for asylum in UK.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday approached the Interpol seeking a red corner notice against billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi, who is at the centre of the over $2 billion PNB fraud case.

"The Mission has also submitted video and photographic evidences of the culprits to the Metropolitan Police and is following up with them", the official said. Unequal standards: India and UK signed a mutual extradition treaty way back in 1993; but while India did extradite a UK national, Maninderpal Singh Kohli, in the Hannah Foster murder case in 2008, UK has been stonewalling all of India's extradition requests, including of British national Raymond Varley, who's accused of child abuse in Goa.

His high-end eponymous brand has stores in several of the world's major cities and boasts celebrity customers including actresses Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet and Bollywood megastar Priyanka Chopra.

Trump adviser says there’s a ‘special place in hell’ for Canadian leader
But despite the rows over trade and Russia, Mr Trump rated his relationship with other G7 leaders as 10 out of 10. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland first announced "dollar-for-dollar tariffs" against the USA on May 31.

She, however, denied commenting anything on businessman and jewellery designer Nirav Modi case and said, "I will not comment on an ongoing case with legal processes involved".

His escape had caused massive public outcry, with opposition political parties accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of helping him flee.

Indian police issued a warrant for the billionaire diamond trader's arrest.

The Enforcement Directorate, India's financial fraud-investigating agency, had unsuccessfully approached Interpol in March for an global arrest warrant.

It comes as India's government seeks the extradition of liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya over unpaid loans to his beleaguered Kingfisher Airlines after he absconded to Britain in 2016.

India's government is trying to reduce the crippling debts of the country's embattled state banks, including PNB.

It recently announced a $32 billion recapitalization plan to help them clean up their books ahead of the general election in 2019. It is alleged that Nirav Modi and others had cheated PNB in connivance with certain bank officials by getting LOUs issued fraudulently without following due procedure, making the bank incur a huge loss. United Kingdom minister of state for counter-terrorism Baroness Williams on Monday took up the issue with Minister of State (Home) Kiren Rijiju, asking New Delhi to formalise the agreement, officials said.
