London, September 19 

Fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi, wanted in India in connection with the nearly $2-billion PNB fraud and money laundering case, was on Thursday further remanded in judicial custody until October 17 by a UK court which said it was working towards his extradition trial hearing in May next year.

The 48-year-old appeared via videolink before Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London from his prison for a routine “call-over” hearing. Judge David Robinson told Nirav Modi, who is fighting extradition to India, that there was nothing “substantial” to deal with and that the court was working towards a five-day extradition trial hearing for May 11-15, 2020.
