    Congress leveled up with another salvo on Centre over the PNB fraud allegedly involving designer jeweller Nirav Modi, saying the country's "biggest bank loot scam" is pegged far bigger at Rs 21,306 crore with fresh revelations.

    Congress President Rahul Gandhi fired yet pointed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Nirav Modi fleeing the country. Taking to Twitter, he posted, "The scamster's escape formula: La(Mo) + Ni(Mo) ---(with) Na(Mo)---> Bha(Go)", while using the hashtag "#ModiRobsIndia".

    The opposition party hit out at the PM for his "silence" on the issue, alleging that he did not act on the scam even after his office was informed about it by one Vaibhav Khuraniya on May 7, 2015.

    Releasing letters purportedly written to various agencies in this regard, Congress communications incharge Randeep Surjewala asked why the BJP and government were silent on the issue and how accused Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi were "allowed" to escape.

    "India's biggest 'bank loot scam' has got bigger over the last 24 hours to Rs 21,306 crore as layers of the conspiracy got unearthed by the hour," he told reporters.
