Modi's counsel declined to respond, and Modi has vehemently denied any wrongdoing. The jeweller said that there was a great danger of suicide if he was extradited, according to a copy of the London court decision. The jeweller left India in 2018 before information about his suspected participation in a massive fraud at the Punjab National Bank became public. But on Wednesday, the London High Court decided that Modi, 51, could be kept secure in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail, where he is scheduled to be detained.
If Modi is extradited, there may be a significant danger of suicide, but the prison's setup will allow staff to handle Mr. Modi's situation appropriately, according to Judge Jeremy Stuart-Smith. Modi, whose diamonds have been worn by Hollywood celebrities including Dakota Johnson and Kate Winslet, has the right to appeal the decision to the UK Supreme Court. He was detained after being apprehended in Britain in March 2019.
