CBI SECURES INTERPOL RED CORNER AGAINST MEHUL CHOKSI

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI),according to report published in TOI, has managed to secure an Interpol Red Notice against fugitive diamond trader Mehul Choksi, in what is seen as a big boost to its efforts to bring him back to India to face trial in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud.

Choksi became a citizen of the Caribbean country Antigua and Barbuda under a programme in which a certain quantum of investment entitles an individual to citizenship. Investigations have showed that Choksi began the process to take citizenship of the twin-island nation last year, well before he left India in the first week
of January.
