The BJP on Thursday accused the Congress of making “sinister efforts” to save fugitive businessman Nirav Modi, who is undergoing an extradition trial in the PNB fraud case at London’s Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad claimed that a Congress leader, Abhay Thipsay, a former Bombay HC and Allahabad HC judge, deposed as a defence witness to oppose extradition proceedings against Nirav and told the court that the CBI’s charges would not stand scrutiny under Indian law. “Means, he tried to save Nirav Modi,” Prasad alleged.
