A SPECIAL court in Mumbai on Friday issued a non-bailable warrant against Ami Modi, the wife of absconding diamond merchant Nirav Modi. Special Judge M S Azmi issued summons to Ami returnable on April 12.
Last month, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had named Ami for the first time in its supplementary complaint (chargesheet) related in the alleged Punjab National Bank fraud case. The ED had moved court seeking warrant and summons against Ami so that she joins the probe.
In its complaint, the ED has alleged that Modi’s sister, Purvi, had transferred $26 million out of the $89 million received through alleged fraudulent Letters of Undertaking (LoUs) by her Dubai-based ‘shadow entity’ Fine Classic FZE to Ami for purchase of two properties in the United States.
