Neither my wife, sons nor me have anything to do with Nirav Modi companies: Abhishek Singhvi of Cong
Nirav Modi (46), a regular feature on the lists of rich and famous Indians since 2013, was booked by the CBI, along with his wife and brother, besides business partner Choksi on January 31, for allegedly cheating the state-run PNB.
"Nirmala Sitharaman & her colleagues are liable to civil & criminal defamation for making ignorant & patently false allegations. I reserve my rights to take all such appropriate legal action against the latter & all parts of media which carry such allegations," Abhishek Singhvi added.
"Adwait Holding owns a commercial property at Parel, as it does elsewhere, which was rented by Firestone many years ago. Neither Adwait nor my family has any interest with Modi or Firestone. Firestone vacated Parel Kamla Mills premises in December 2017," Singhvi further clarified.
