  • Fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi fears he might be kidnapped again & may be taken to Guyana. Choksi added that he may be further taken away from Guyana in an unlawful & illegal manner. “I am presently confined to the limits of my house in Antigua. My health deteriorated further due to the traumatising experience I had. I feel very unsafe, I may be kidnapped again & taken to Guyana. Guyana has a strong Indian presence, this may be utilised to spirit me away illegally,” he said. My lawyers are fighting cases in both Antigua and Dominica. I have complete faith that I shall emerge victorious,” he added. Mehul Choksi had gone missing from Antigua on May 23 this year after going out for dinner. The fugitive diamantaire was soon caught in Dominica & was charged with illegal entry. Choksi allegedly escaped from Antigua in a possible attempt to evade extradition to India. Later on July 12, The Dominica High Court granted him interim bail on medical grounds. The 62-year-old fugitive is wanted in India in connection with a 13,500 crore fraud with the PNB.
