There’s just something about businessmen getting big loans from public-sector banks that they fail to repay and then settle in abroad with no sign of money, that we as middle-class citizens of this country would never be able to understand or cope up with. First, it was Vijay Mallya who no longer gives any f**k to the banks and the country he owes money to, and now it’s Nirav Modi.

International luxury diamond jewellery designer Nirav Modi was ranked #57 in the Forbes list of India’s billionaires in 2017, however, recently he was caught by Punjab National Bank conducting a fraud of $1.77 billion, i.e. ₹11,400 crore in a branch in Mumbai.

PNB, the second largest public sector bank in the country, on Wednesday informed the Bombay Stock Exchange that it’s detected some “fraudulent and unauthorised transactions” in one of its branches in Mumbai to the tune of $1771.69 million. Soon the world started dissecting Nirav Modi and his family involved in this huge fraud, to piece.

Priyanka Chopra who was once the brand ambassador of Nirav Modi’s jewellry company soon sued the man for non-payment of dues.

Along with Nirav Modi, many other names have come to the forefront regarding the fraud. Nirav Modi and his partner-in-crime’s passport have been suspended for four weeks by the authorities in the country. However, as reported by various dailies, the man is discreetly living at New York’s JW Marriott Essex at 160 Central Park South.
