Minutes after the telephonic conversation, Republic attempted to contact Nirav Modi's younger brother Neeshal again, this time via a text message from Republic TV’s Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami to reconfirm his address. Neeshal replied that he was in Belgium and that he was not comfortable to discuss anything as he himself “is a victim and trying to understand his position”.

Neeshal in the course of the chat reveals that he doesn’t want to come out in the limelight as he is trying to ascertain what is going on his name, claiming, he is a "small guy in a big kind of situation”. 

This year in June, the Enforcement Directorate succeeded in getting Interpol to issue a Red Corner Notice against fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi. The RCN along with the name of the jeweler mentioned the names of his brother Neeshal Modi and close aide Subhash Parab. Neeshal has been on the run for about 241 days.
