New Delhi: First photo of fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi in police custody in Dominica, Choksi can be seen standing behind a gate with iron grills, resembling a lock-up.
Mehul Choksi’s lawyers have alleged that he was “abducted” from Antigua and Barbuda, “forcibly taken to Dominica”, “badly beaten up” and has suffered “bruises”.
On Friday, a court in Dominica heard a habeas corpus petition filed on behalf of Mehul Choksi.
Mehul Choksi is wanted in the Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank fraud case. He was arrested in Dominica on Wednesday for allegedly entering the country “illegally” from Antigua and Barbuda, where he has been living since January 2018.
