The fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi, a key accused in the multi-billion PNB fraud case, seems to be still making the headlines, but this time it’s not related to the scam but it’s about his wife and him. Now, a report has emerged in which it is said that Nirav Modi and his wife Ami are allegedly getting a divorce.
According to Mumbai Mirror, Nirav Modi is said to have severed marital ties just to protect Ami from culpability, and he will also pay her a hefty alimony which ensures much of his money stays with her and their kids. The leading daily also reached out to Nirav Modi’s lawyer Vijay Aggarwal, who said that he has instructions from his client not to comment.
Ami Modi, the wife of billionaire diamond merchant and jeweller Nirav Modi, is now under the scanner after the alleged scam of Rs 11,400 crore involving her husband came to light. Nirav Modi and Ami have three children, son Rohin and two daughters Apasha and Ananya. The official website of the Nirav Modi Foundation lists Ami as the trustee along with Tushar Agarwal. She was involved in setting up the “Nirav Modi Scholarship for Excellence” that helps and support 250 exceptionally talented students every year.
