New Delhi: Fugitive Mehul Choksi is lodged in the prison of Dominica, a Caribbean country about 14 thousand kilometers from India. He is accused in the PNB bank scam of 13.5 billion rupees. Mehul Choksi has bruises on his arm and in his left eye.
Dominica is standing in the plane
At the same time, a private jet of Qatar Airways stands at Dominica’s Douglas-Charles airport. This private jet took off from Delhi airport on May 28 with documents related to Mehul Choksi. Since then it has stood in Dominica. The important thing is that the hourly fare of this private jet is 8 lakh 40 thousand rupees.
Now the question is, will Mehul Choksi (Mehul Choksi) return home with this private jet? Mehul Choksi is currently in the Caribbean country of Dominica. There, on 2 June, the court will hear the matter whether Mehul Choksi be handed over to India or he should be handed over to Antigua and Barbuda? The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda Gaston Browne has said that he has urged Dominica’s government to send Mehul Choksi to India. But is it possible? This is a big question.
Choksi had escaped in the year 2018
Mehul Choksi is a citizen of Antigua and Barbuda. He acquired the citizenship of this country in the year 2017. In the year 2018, when the PNB Bank scam of 13.5 billion rupees was exposed in India. Then the main accused of this scam, Mehul Choksi, fled India to Antigua in the first week of January. He had already taken citizenship of this country. Now he is not even in this country. This is the reason why Indian investigative agencies are expected to extradite him.
Watch the video-
If you look at the map, you will find that Antigua-Barbuda and Dominica are both Caribbean countries. The Caribbean region lies between the continent of North America and South America. Now the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda says that Mehul Choksi suddenly disappeared from his country a few days ago. There are reports that he entered a Yacht from Antigua to Dominica with one of his female companions.
Sneaked into Dominica to escape
He did not have a passport and entered the Dominica illegally. Therefore, he was arrested. When this news was received by Antigua, the Prime Minister requested Dominica to hand over Mehul Choksi to India. This is the reason why this private jet from Qatar Airways from India reached Dominica with documents related to it.
There are reports that the woman with whom Mehul Choksi was with is his Girlfriend. And took Dominica to make this woman Dinner. Because these two countries are not far away. But during this time he got caught in Dominica by CID.
13.5 billion rupees scam
Think Mehul Choksi was having dinner at his girlfriend in Dominica after scam of 13.5 billion rupees in India. The thing to understand now is whether Dominica will hand over Mehul Choksi to India? There are reports in the newspapers that this can happen. He can hand over Mehul Choksi to India. Actually Mehul Choksi is a citizen of India before Antigua. However, India has no extradition treaty with Dominica.
At present, India has extradition treaties with 47 countries all over the world. Apart from this, there are extradition arrangements with 11 countries. India is tied in this arrangement with Antigua and Barbuda. However, there is a vast difference between the extradition treaty and the system. The country with which the extradition treaty takes place – is committed to the extradition of a citizen to another country. Whereas in extradition arrangements – that country can help but does not ensure extradition.
India has neither extradition treaty nor extradition arrangements with Dominica in this case. Nevertheless, it is expected that in view of Indian citizenship and criminal case against Mehul Choksi, Dominica’s court will hand it over to Indian investigative agencies.
Rent over one crore rupees
You can guess from this that this private jet of Qatar Airways is waiting for it at the airport there. That too when the one hour fare of this jet is 8 lakh 40 thousand rupees. The next hearing of the Dominica court in the Mehul Choksi case will be on 2 June. In such a situation, if this jet stands there, its fare will be more than 1 crore rupees. Still waiting for Mehul Choksi.
However, what you have to understand here is that these small countries give special rights and citizenship to the people who invest there. It is not necessary to stay here by taking citizenship of these countries. Mehul Choksi did the same. He invested in Antigua and Barbuda and this investment gave him citizenship of this country. Although he continued to live in India even after getting citizenship.
When he felt that he would not survive in India, he cut the tickets for Antigua and Barbuda. This is to say that he did everything in a planned manner. In these countries, there are many powers to protect it. You would think that politics takes place on such serious subjects in our country itself. You will be surprised to know that the level of politics in these small countries is even lower.
Politics intensified in Antigua
Think of it as such that there is a lot of politics happening in Antigua on the extradition of Mehul Choksi. UPP ie United Progressive Party is the major opposition party of Antigua. Jamale Pringle, a prominent leader of this party, reportedly had a meeting with Mehul Choksi’s family a few days ago. It is alleged that in this meeting, this party had entered into an agreement for political funding with Mehul Choksi. Not only this, after this agreement, this party also protested in favor of Mehul Choksi against the government in the Parliament there.
It is also said that a large team of Mehul Choksi was working in both Antigua and Dominica countries. The task of this team was to gather political support to save Mehul Choksi from extradition. That is, all efforts are being made to save Mehul Choksi by meeting in these countries. There are allegations that he has a good hold in the government there and he has influence in opposition parties as well. Apart from this, claims are also made for political funding and huge investment in these countries.
Choksi was looking for escape to Cuba
Not only this, Mehul Choksi is also looking at his chances in Cuba and he was also looking for escape there. In a line, this time there are expectations of extradition of Mehul Choksi but this is not the expectation. Despite this, Indian investigative agencies are trying and Mehul Choksi is running away from the diamond businessman as a fugitive.
We believe how much he participates but he will not run away from Indian law. The hands of the law of our country are very long. If not today, then tomorrow, Mehul Choksi and Nirav Modi will be caught. Those who are accused of PNB bank scam of Rs 13.55 crores.
