Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has initiated a huge Congressional attack. He said that the Congress is engaged in saving Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi. He said there is a Mumbai High Court retired judge, who took the stand as Nirav Modi’s defense witness that there is no evidence against Nirav Modi.
The Union Minister said that Congress leader and former judge Abhay Thipsay testified in favor of Nirav. Ten months before his retirement, the Supreme Court Collegium transferred him from Bombay High Court to Allahabad High Court on administrative grounds.
He said he joined the Congress party on 13 June 2018. This was a high-profile joining in the presence of Rahul Gandhi, Ashok Gehlot, Ashok Chavan. We had also said earlier that in the case of Nirav Modi the Congress party often plays the savior position.
The lawyer of diamond businessman Nirav Modi told the London court on the second day of the extradition trial that his client had mental health problems. Lawyer Claire Montgomery also said that if Nirav Modi is extradited and kept in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail, it would be a violation of his client’s human rights. The lawyer said all the allegations against Nirav Modi were baseless.
