Antigua government to consider 'legitimate request' from India to send back Mehul Choksi
Updated : July 26, 2018 09:27 PM IST
The Daily Observer today quoted a Cabinet press briefing issued by the Chief of Staff, Lionel "Max" Hurst, to state that Antigua and Barbuda government will make every effort as per law to honour a "legitimate" request from India.
The issue of Choksi, a fugitive from India involved in an alleged banking scam worth over $ 2 billion, getting citizenship in Antigua in November last year was discussed in a Cabinet meeting of Antigua and Barbuda government.
Nirav Modi and Choksi are being investigated by the ED and the CBI after it was detected that they allegedly cheated the Punjab National Bank of more than Rs 13,400 crore with purported involvement of a few of the lender's employees.
