IMA Jewels founder Mansoor Khan, who is accused of a scam worth thousands of crores, said that leaving India was a big mistake and will return in 24 hours.
More than a month after he went absconding, Mansoor Khan has released yet another video.
“I have been trying to return to Bengaluru. I have been unwell and been on bed rest for one month because of my cardiac and diabetic condition. Today, I can make this video as my palpitation is under control. But I promised that I will return as soon as possible. I have a diabetic condition and also heart blockage. I have to undergo an immediate operation as I have three blocks in my heart, and I don’t have enough money”, he said in the video.
“Since I could not afford to get proper treatment, I will be coming to India in 24 hours, on my will. I have full faith in the Indian judiciary”, he added.
The SIT team probing the matter had ordered suspended Congress MLA Roshan Baig to appear before the panel. However, he asked for more time till July 25. The panel has asked him to appear on July 19.
Roshan Baig has been accused by Mansoor Khan of taking more than Rs 400 crores from him and filing to return it.
Baig had refuted the allegation, saying the statement was “frivolous, baseless and mischievous.”
Over 25,000 complaints have been filed against the company, demanding that their money be returned.
Mansoor is the prime accused in the multi-crore ‘halal’ ponzi scam, wherein he has been accused of cheating 40,000 investors to the tune of Rs 2,000 crore.
