Nirav Modi, accused of defrauding the Punjab National Bank of more than Rs 14,000 crore, on Thursday came closer to being extradited to India. "I am satisfied that there is evidence which could convict him," observed the UK judge while passing orders to extradite Modi. The jeweller had fled to the UK from where he was subsequently arrested following an Interpol notice issued against him on request of the Indian government. Sidharth Pandey reports
