After Republic TV tracked down Nirav Modi and his younger brother Neeshal's phone number, Republic TV's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami warned him that he will soon be breathing the air of Indian jail.
"To Nirav Modi, I say, as I said to Mallya, we will get you. You will be in Indian jails in Indian jail clothes and eating Indian jail food" he said.
Republic TV on Thursday accessed the phone numbers of fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi and Neeshal Modi.
In a WhatsApp conversation between Neeshal and Republic TV's Senior Editor Shawan Sen, the former stated that he was not in touch with his brother since the past five to six months and that he was a victim.
From the 50 messages that were exchanged between Senior Editor Shawan Sen and Neeshal, the latter also pointed finger at a 'certain family member' for being in this situation. Neeshal who is a Belgian national, fled the country on the same day as his brother after the scandal came into light.
Republic TV also tracked down Nirav Modi's hideouts in the UK. The fugitive fraud-accused's first hideout is found to be located in London's fashionable and central Westminster area, on the thirteenth and top-most floor of an upscale residential building. The flat number on the thirteenth floor is No.103. The door opposite to it, 104, was found to have an 'Om' symbol on it.
Meanwhile, Nirav Modi's second alleged hideout, which is listed on the CBI's extradition note, is in a fancy luxury apartment block located next to the Tower of London. Sources say that he has been shuffling between the two addresses for the last few months.
Shawan also tracked Nirav Modi down on WhatsApp using an alias and his London number. However, on realizing he's being chased, Nirav Modi shut off his phone.
