A bankrupt US firm of jeweller Nirav Modi, accused in the $2 billion PNB fraud in India, has received strong early expressions of interest from buyers, according to court filings.

Firestar Diamond Inc filed for bankruptcy protection on February 26 in the United States, following accusations that other firms led by Modi and his uncle colluded with officials of Punjab National Bank to secure unauthorised loans starting 2011.

Investigators have subsequently attached or seized various assets belonging to Modi and his companies. Firestar is not named in the police complaint.
