Red Corner notice against Lalit Modi likely, says Rathore

There is a ‘strong possibility’ that the NDA government would seek a Red Corner notice against former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi, Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said.

“BJP government is making strong efforts to bring back former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi,” Rathore, in town as part of BJP’s campaign against Congress’ disruption of Parliament, said.

“Now, there is strong possibility that Red Corner notice will be issued against him,” he added, accusing the former UPA government of not doing anything to corner Lalit Modi and now misleading people from the opposition benches.

During the UPA regime, a case under Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) was lodged against Lalit Modi and a Light Blue Corner notice was issued. FEMA has no provisions of arrests and imprisonments, while the notice was applicable only in regional airports, Rathore said.
