Fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi, wanted in India in connection with the nearly USD 2 billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud and money laundering case, was on Thursday further remanded to judicial custody until August 22.

During a short remand hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court via videolink from Wandsworth prison, the judge extended Modi’s remand till August 22.

Modi, 48, has been lodged at Wandsworth prison in south-west London, since his arrest in March in connection with the nearly USD 2 billion PNB fraud, and money laundering case.

He appeared for the first time since his bail appeal was rejected by the UK High Court earlier last month.
