Supreme Court of India

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe against Nirav Modi in the multi-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, news agency ANI reported.

Opposing the plea, Attorney general K K Venugopal said that the plea made baseless allegations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Finance Minister in the scam.

The Supreme Court, according to the ANI report, also observed that the PIL is devoid of merit and the allegations made in it are “unwarranted” and “reckless”.

The SC rejected the PIL seeking probe against Nirav Modi days after the Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice against the absconding diamantaire.
