As the news reports earlier indicated that the fugitive businessman Nirav Modi was in Hong Kong and India making attempts to bring him back, it is now speculated that he may have moved to New York.
Modi is also learnt to be staying in a lavish hotel.
Speculation is that Nirav Modi may have been in New York since the third week of March.
Nirav Modi, sources said, has no plans to visit India and has even started his own business there.
Earlier this month, Minister of State in the Ministry of External Affairs General (retd) VK Singh informed the Rajya Sabha that the ministry has sought the provisional arrest of Nirav Deepak Modi.
He said the request was made on March 23.>
