When the Nirav Modi scam made headline, the entire nation was shocked and surprised. The man behind a big diamond empire eloped the country right before the scam hit the papers and the government couldn't get him back to the homeland to punish him.
However, people who flock from India have a way of finding a life beyond the border here. After Vijay Mallya was traced in UK, Nirav Modi was spotted chilling in London near his 8 million pounds apartment (roughly 72 Crore) by a reporter from Telegraph and his video has gone viral on social media.

The reporter persisted with a few question to Modi about the money he owed and how long he intended to stay in England. Nirav Modi's standard reply to every question was 'no comment'. He smiled and politely faded away in the crown as if he's a star being hounded for pictures. The report also claimed that Modi was wearing a jacket made from Ostrich hide which roughly costs around 9 lakh rupees, so clearly he's not as distraught as one might imagine him to be! Also, as per the report, he has resumed his business under a new name and is living a decent life.Nirav Modi was accused of committing one of the biggest frauds in the history of India and he owes PNB a sum of over 13,600 crores already. His uncle, Mehul Choksi who was also accused in the same case is already residing in Antigua and Barbada.
