PNB-fraud accused Nirav Modi’s Nehal Modi, who is also wanted by the CBI for the same fraud, has been charged in New York for duping a company of over $1.4 million in diamonds.
As per a statement released by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Junior on December 18, Nehal allegedly made ?false representations to procure more than gems worth $2.6 million from LLD diamonds in USA on favourable credit terms. Nehal is said to have later liquidated the diamonds for personal gain.
According to the statement, Nehal approached LLD by saying that he was looking at a business relationship with Costco Wholesale Corporation (US multinational company) and sought diamonds worth Rs $8,00,000 from LLD for a potential sale.
Later, Nehal lied to LLD that Costco had agreed to do business with him and hence purchased more diamonds amounting to total $2.6 million from LLD on credit. Nehal made a series of payments to LLD but pawned majority of diamonds for personal use and business expenses. Nehal also falsely claimed to LLD that the was encountering payment issues due to Costco fulfillment error.
After LLD realized that it had been duped, it demanded an immediate payment from Nehal. As Nehal had already sold or pawned the diamonds, LLD approached Manhattan District Attorneys office.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Junior said in the statement: ?While diamonds may be forever, this flawed scheme was not, and now Mr Modi will face the clarity of a New York Supreme Court indictment.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
