Fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi has sought permission to file an appeal in the Supreme Court in London against his extradition order. Nirav’s extradition has been ordered by the London High Court. A two-judge bench of the High Court dismissed the appeal filed by PNB scam prime accused Nirav Modi against his extradition to India. In his appeal, Nirav pleaded not to send himself to India, citing his poor mental condition.

During the hearing, the High Court judge accepted that all the matters cited in his appeal were unnecessary. Court accepted that there is no danger of suicide by sending him to India. The court also rejected the arguments in his appeal that it would be unfair to send him to India. The court said that it is better that he be sent to India to be part of the legal process.
