Indian Officials Continue to push for extradition of Choksi


The Enforcement Directorate has started the extradition process for Mehul Choksi, Nirav Modi’s maternal uncle, and co-accused in the Rs 13,500 cr Punjab National Bank scam. Choksi, owner of the Gitanjali group that deals in Jewellery, fled the country after the scam surfaced.

Earlier this year, Choksi surrendered his Indian passport to the High Commission in Guyana, and took up the citizenship of Antigua & Barbuda, a country in the Caribbean Sea.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had met with Foreign Minister of Antigua & Barbuda on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly last year and had raised the matter.

Along with an extradition request for Nirav Modi to UK, India had also sent a similar request for Choksi to Antigua last year.

  1. It’s time for this guy to go home to India and face the music. India is not a dictatorship, but the world’s largest democracy, where the rule of law is respected. He will be given fair treatment in the land of his birth. Have a pleasant journey.

  2. At the risk of sounding repetitive…The Indian Govt. need to stop trying to follow protocol (doesn’t work in Antigua) and simply, as per USA, come and get him!

  3. Please get a recent photo of the man. I reckon by now he no longer has a fat neck and double chin. If the stress of this case didn’t slim him down, then a nice fluffy woman or some high grade sensahmania did.

    • Let’s get serious. The size of this guys neck is of no interest. He should go home to face the charges. Who cares how he looks!
