Trouble is mounting for absconding billionaire Mehul Choksi as the Interpol in its latest move has issued a Red Corner Notice against him.
Choksi who is accused of cheating state-run Punjab National Bank to the tune of Rs 13,000 crore in alleged collusion with his nephew Nirav Modi .
Choksi, who escaped in the first week of January this year after he and his companies cheated the bank of Rs 7,000 crore, has taken citizenship of Antigua.
It may be re-called that in an interview to a leading Hindi TV channel Choksi has claimed that he is innocent & all allegations against him are false, baseless & motivated by political expediency.
However, the Antigua government, during a meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Antigua counterpart E P Chet Greene on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly assured India that it would cooperate in extradition of Mehul Choksi.
