A joint team of the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate would reach the United Kingdom to extend legal assistance to prosecutors in the extradition proceedings against the Punjab National Bank fraud case accused Nirav Modi.

A Joint Director-level official from each agency had been assigned the work. The Directorate would also share with the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service a certified copy of the supplementary charge sheet recently filed against Mr. Nirav Modi’s wife Ami and others.

The agency had also accused her of money laundering for acquiring overseas assets from the fraudulently obtained funds.

The next hearing in the case was scheduled for March 29, when Mr. Nirav Modi might again seek bail. The court had denied him bail at the first hearing, after he was arrested by the Scotland Yard. The accused was attempting to open a bank account when the police was alerted on his whereabouts.
