Officials fear that even Interpol Notice may not help extradite Mehul Choksi to India

The CBI officials fear that even an Interpol notice against the fugitive billionaire Mehul Choksi may not help to extradite him to India. The Central Bureau of Investigation has been making meticulous efforts to make sure that Mehul Choksi, is sent back to the country.

As per an official of the CBI, Mehul Choksi, unlike his nephew Nirav Modi, appears to have planned his escape in a very calculated fashion.

The CBI had recently made a request for a Red Corner Notice against Mehul Choksi and is actively pursuing the case. So much so, it gave a strong contradiction to allegations made by Mehul Choksi that the cases against him are ‘politically motivated’.

However, the request for Red Corner Notice was put on hold by the Interpol after Mehul Choksi made a representation during which he alleged that the cases against him was an upshot of a ‘political consipracy’. He raised questions about the state of the jails in India, his health and personal safety among other things.

Nonetheless, the CBI was quick to give a reasonable rebuttal to the “baseless” assertions of the fugitive diamantaire who is alleged to be the prime accused in the biggest financial fraud of India which amounts up to $2 billion in Punjab National Bank, stated the officials.

The case has now moved to a five-member Interpol committee court, known as Commission for Control of Files, which will next month gauge the contentions of both the sides and give its judgement on the request for issuing a Red Corner Notice against Mehul Choksi, stated the officials.
