Fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi on Wednesday cited poor conditions of Indian jails and increased “risk” of depression that may lead to suicide in his fresh appeal against extradition in the UK. Modi’s lawyer argued that extradition to India can trigger grave depression, which could lead to self-harm and hence must be refused.

Modi’s lawyer said understaffing of doctors and overcrowding lead to delays in getting prisoners to hospitals when in need as he cited his suicidal tendencies from the time his mother died by suicide when he was eight years old.

Acknowledging his right to have consultations with a psychiatrist of his choice in Indian prisons, Modi argued that approval for a visit would have to be taken from a judge based on their whims.

Nirav Modi has been accused in $2 billion Punjab National Bank fraud case.
