Who’s On The 8-Member Team Sent For Mission Choksi
An eight-member multi-agency team from India is in Dominica to bring back fugitive Mehul Choksi, who is in jail there after an alleged escape attempt from Antigua, where he had been living since 2018.
The team, which reached the tiny island nation on May 28 (Friday), will be present at a court hearing on Mehul Choksi tomorrow and will assist the Dominican Public Prosecution.
Sources say if everything works according to plan, the same team hopes to bring back the jeweler wanted in a massive PNB loan fraud case.
The eight-member team flew to Dominica on a private jet from Qatar. The same jet is expected to fly Choksi back to India.
Sources say Choksi will be formally arrested at the Delhi airport the moment he lands.
Sources say two each from the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) are part of “Mission Choksi”.
Sharada Raut, the CBI’s chief of Banking Frauds, is a key member of the team as the officer heading investigations into the PNB or Punjab National Bank scam.
