Nirav Modi still travelling, Interpol not yet issued RCN

So far in the Nirav Modi fraud case, investigative agencies have been unable to secure a Red Corner Notice (RCN) from India’s Interpol which has made it more possible for Modi to travel internationally despite his passport having been revoked.

A RCN is almost equivalent to an international arrest warrant and must be issued by Interpol. However, the International Criminal Police Organisation has maintained since February that a RCN cannot be given until charges are filed against Modi. So far, no official charges have been filed.

To date, only a First Information Report (FIR) has been filed against Modi through the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate for allegedly being a main part of the Rs 13,000 crore ($2 billion) fraud at the Punjab National Bank (PNB) along with his uncle and fellow jeweller Mehul Choksi. A second FIR may be filed against Modi after it has transpired that he held multiple Indian passports which is an offence, barring criteria that he does not meet.

Modi is currently reported to be residing in Brussels. His second active Indian passport, which had in only his first name and a 40-month UK visa, has also now been revoked. Now the agencies’ main worry is that Modi will attempt to buy citizenship in another country which would mean that he would have a much greater change of evading extradition to India to stand trial.
