The court on Wednesday dismissed Nirav Modi’s appeal, bringing Indian agencies one step closer to bringing him into the country to face charges of fraud and money laundering.
Nirav Modi has 14 days to appeal against the decision in the UK Supreme Court.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi held a press conference on Thursday. During this he gave information on various subjects. He gave an update on the stranded sailors in Equatorial Guinea and the fire in the Maldives. Arindam Bagchi said that we are aware of the consular issue. As per our understanding, 16 Indian sailors are stranded there. We are in touch with the detained seafarers and we are making all efforts to resolve the issue as soon as possible. He said that all the sailors are in Equatorial Guinea.

Apart from this, he said that a fire broke out in a residential building in Male, Maldives on Wednesday night. Maldivian authorities have confirmed the death of 10 people. The process of identification of the deceased is on. Our High Commission is providing all possible assistance to the affected Indians and their families.

Arindam Bagchi said that we are able to identify the dead bodies as Indian citizens. I do not want to confirm how many Indians have been killed. Initial reports suggest a fire broke out in the building. The Maldivian government has announced a thorough investigation.

Along with this, he made a big statement about the economic fugitive. He said that we have seen another court ruling in favor of extradition to India in the case of Sanjay Bhandari. This is usually a lengthy process, but we will continue to do everything possible so that the economic fugitives can come back to India to face the country’s justice system.
