Seeking restoration of the assets of two firms owned by fugitive diamond merchant Nirav formula 1 fia, the Punjab National Bank (PNB) on Wednesday moved multiple applications before a special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court. The bank has sought restoration of assets of Nirav formula 1 fia's firms confiscated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The application was submitted before special judge V C Barde under the relevant provisions of the PMLA.
The move from the bank came after ED confiscated Nirav formula 1 fia's assets worth over ₹329.66 crore under the fugitive economic offenders law. The confiscated property includes assets of Firestar Diamond International Private Limited and Firestar International Limited, firms owned by Modi. Earlier on July 1, the fugitive diamantaire's sister, Purvi, had remitted a sum of Rs 17.25 crore from her bank account in the UK to that of the Indian government. Purvi claimed that she was unaware of the bank account opened by her brother and she informed the ED as soon as she learned about it.
