New Delhi: More trouble seems to be in store for former IPL chairman Lalit Modi with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) seeking an Interpol notice against him in connection with its probe in a money laundering case relating to alleged financial irregularities in the operations of various editions of the T-20 cricket tournament.
The agency is also mulling to seek extradition of Mr Modi by sending a request in this regard to the ministry of external affairs through the home ministry.
The Mumbai zone of the ED officially moved for a ‘Red Corner Notice’ (RCN) against Mr Modi on the basis of a non-bailable warrant (NBW) issued recently by a special court.
The agency has sought the global notice as earlier notices served on Mr Modi based on PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) had not met with any success.
“Once the RCN is sounded, the Interpol seeks to arrest the person concerned in any part of the world and notifies that country to take his or her custody for further action at their end”, sources said.
