It is one of the few cases in which Indian agencies have attached assets of any criminal in abroad.

The Central Burea Investigation (CBI) had requested the UK authorities to detain Modi on the basis of the Red Corner Notice issued by the Interpol against Modi on July 2.

In the issued RCN, the Interpol urged its 192 member countries to detain or arrest Modi if he spotted in their countries so that extradition can begin.
