Fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi fears he may be kidnapped again

Choksi is wanted in India in connection with a Rs 13,500 crore bank fraud 

Fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi fears that he might be kidnapped again and may be taken to Guyana, from where he may be taken away in an unlawful and illegal manner.

Choksi, who is an accused in the Punjab National Bank scam, had alleged he was kidnapped from near his home in Antigua, his country of residence, and taken to Dominica in May.

Choksi told ANI, “I may be coerced and kidnapped once again, and taken to Guyana, where there is a strong Indian presence, which may be utilised to spirit me away in an unlawful and illegal manner.”

Choksi claimed his experience of being taken to Dominica had affected his physical and mental health.

My lawyers are fighting cases in both Antigua and Dominica and I have complete faith that I shall emerge victorious because I am an Antiguan Citizen who was kidnapped, abducted and taken against my will to a different country," he alleged.

Choksi had gone missing from Antigua on May 23 this year after going out for dinner and was soon caught in Dominica. He was charged with illegal entry by the police in Dominica after he allegedly escaped from Antigua and Barbuda in a possible attempt to evade extradition to India.

Later on July 12, The Dominica High Court granted him interim bail on medical grounds.

The 62-year-old fugitive is wanted in India in connection with a Rs 13,500 crore fraud with the Punjab National Bank (PNB).
