The decision on the fate of businessman Mehul Choksi, who fled the country by cheating Indian banks, will come shortly. The hearing of Choksi’s case has started in a court in Dominica. From here he was arrested on May 25. The court in Dominica will decide on Choksi, who entered the country illegally, whether he should be handed over to India or sent back to Antigua.
The opposition party in Dominica is pressuring that Choksi be deported to Antigua, while Antigua Prime Minister Gaston Browne claims that Choksi is still an Indian citizen. He says that a notice was sent by Antigua to not give his citizenship to Choksi, on which he had taken a stay. This argument of Gaston can be useful for Indian agencies.
According to sources, the ED will also file a separate application in the court of Dominica. It will contain the necessary arguments for his guilt and extradition to India. A red corner notice has been issued against Choksi. According to sources, if the court in Dominica allows, the ED will tell the court that the person in their prison is a criminal, who is absconding since January 2018. Therefore, on the basis of the Red Corner Notice, he should be handed over to India immediately.
