NEW DELHI: The Interpol has issued a Red Corner Notice against Ami Modi, the wife of fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi in connection with the money laundering cases registered against her in the country.
A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a suspect on the run.
Ami Modi is facing allegations of laundering of funds generated through diversion of bank loans.
The enforcement directorate had earlier approached the Interpol seeking assistance for her arrest as she is a US citizen and had been last spotted in New York. Her husband, Nirav Modi was arrested in the UK last year and is in jail awaiting his extradition to India.
The ED had named Ami Modi as an accused in its chargesheet filed last February and had alleged her to be the beneficiary of a trust through which two apartments worth $30 million were purchased in New York City’s Central Park area.
