The Congress had earlier today attacked the PM+ for failing to take timely action against Nirav Modi.Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, was made aware of this entire fraud by one Shri Hari Prasad by way of a written complaint filed on 26th July, 2016 and
acknowledged by PMO,” said party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, adding that “no action was taken” and the “bank lost the money and the accused escaped.”
Nirav Modi, his wife, brother, and business partner Mehul Choksi were booked by the CBI on January 31, for allegedly cheating state-run Punjab National Bank of Rs 280 crore.
The bank later sent two more complaints to the CBI, saying the scam was worth more than Rs 11,400 crore.
