PNB scam accused Nirav Modi’s second bail plea was rejected by Westminster Magistrates’ court in London on Friday, 29 March.

The prosecution argued that Nirav Modi “threatened to kill” a witness and destroyed evidence. He was also accused of not cooperating with the Indian agencies.

The next date of hearing in the matter is on 26 April.

His first plea had been rejected on 20 March, after his arrest on 19 March. A London court had issued an arrest warrant against him on 18 March.
