Ahead of national election, a major action has been taken against fugitive dimantaire Nirav Modi.
His sprawling seaside mansion was demolished on Friday using explosives.
Raigad District Collector Vijay Suryawanshi stated that it was controlled blasting that led to demolition of the massive building.
The fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi is accused in the USD 2 billion PNB fraud case.
On Tuesday, excavators were used to open up the pillars of the bungalow, called Roopanya, to make space for fixing the detonators.
A special technical team was called to fix them.
Nirav Modi’s bungalow was attached by the ED following his involvement in the Punjab National Bank fraud case.
It was handed over to the collector’s office on January 24, after the ED seized two trucks full of valuables from the building.
