The finance ministry is working with the Prime Ministers Office to resolve the Rs 11,400 crore scam at Punjab National Bank and the government will try to extradite and punish Nirav Modi - alleged to be behind the fraud - Minister of State for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla said today.

Punjab National Bank, India's second-largest state lender, said on Wednesday two junior officers at a single branch had illegally steered $1.77 billion in fraudulent loans to companies, a lot of them controlled by billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi.

The Income Tax Department has also extended a probe into Modi and his group companies, looking into possible tax evasion and suspected investment of illegal funds, a spokeswoman told Reuters on Saturday. The documents that were gathered also included the groups' exposure related to multiple banks, including PNB. He will be accompanied by Chief Vigilance Officer (CVO) of PNB. CVC is the fourth Government agency after ED, CBI and IT Department which has swung into action.

"We will try to extradite Nirav Modi and punish him for the fraud he has done", Shukla said.

The CBI had received the complaint from PNB on January 28 and a case was registered in the case on January 31.
