India said on Saturday it was waiting for Britain to respond to its request to extradite fugitive billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi, after London's Telegraph newspaper reported that he was living in an upscale apartment in London.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that the recent video of the PNB scam accused Nirav Modi in the United Kingdom shows an "uncanny similarity" between the two as both "believe they are above the law".

In December previous year, the Debt Recovery Tribunal (DRT) served notice to Nirav Modi, his family members and his companies to recover over Rs 7,000 crore owed to Punjab National Bank (PNB).

Modi, the report said, "could be seen this week on the phone at the window of his new offices".

The ED and the CBI are investigating Modi, his uncle Mehul Choksi and others for alleged money laundering and corruption to perpetrate the alleged scam in the Brady House branch of the PNB in Mumbai that was unearthed previous year.

Nirav Modi reportedly takes a daily walk from his home to the office with his dog, he is not easily recognisable due to his changed looks.

India is taking all steps necessary for his extradition, an MEA spokesperson said Saturday. Also, an Interpol "red corner" arrest warrant was issued against Nirav Modi on the ED's request, who along with his family as well as uncle Choksi left the country in January, a month before the fraud came to light.

'Nirav Modi is living in a "three-bedroom flat occupying half of a floor of the landmark Centre Point tower block, with views across London".

"The business, which was incorporated last May, is linked to his flat in Centre Point although he is not listed as a director at Companies House", the Telegraph reported, wondering how Modi's presence remained unnoticed by the British authorities. While slightly altering his appearance with a handlebar mustache, the man has been recorded strolling to and from his new business office in Soho, which specializes in the diamond trade. Nirav is apparently in contact with a wealth management firm in west London, which is famous for offering advice to rich foreigners.
