A government dossier accessed indicated that Nirav Modi, one of the key-accused in the Rs 13,600 crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, allegedly fled Hong Kong and moved to New York. The revelation comes at a time when PNB is launching its own measures to nab economic offenders Modi and Mehul Choksi.
