The disappearance case of Mehul Choksi has not reached its conclusion even after two years of its investigation. On top of that, the Attorney General of Antigua and Barbuda has further opened a new chapter of discussion by urging the court to dismiss the kidnapping case.
While appealing the court, the Attorney General cited that no convincing evidence had been discovered suggesting his alleged abduction. The appeal has mentioned that there is a paucity of enough evidence on the matter.
The scrapping appeal of AG has suggested that the country is wasting a massive amount of money in probing the matter. Besides this, the citizens of Antigua and Barbuda have also expressed their disappointment in wasting a lot of money and time investigating the matter.
They are raising questions about his efforts to escape India and say that if he is so honest and innocent, why he is not returning to his native land? They are also asking Choksi to return to his country and resolve the alleged criminal cases in India.
Several also expressed aggression and said that Mehul Choksi is the criminal who looted the taxpayers of his home country and now looting the innocent people of Antigua and Barbuda. While escaping the criminal proceedings in India, the citizens said that Choksi was just pretending to be an honest and innocent person.
Several investigators are also investigating the matter and have reached the conclusion that the abduction story of Choksi has no leg to stand. Mehul Choksi, who was found in Dominica, has circulated several narratives such as the framing of the kidnapping allegations against individuals, fleeing to Cuba, and portrayal of himself as a victim of human rights violation.
Several findings suggested that the disappearance case has nothing that stands as conclusive evidence of Choksi’s kidnapping. There are no eyewitnesses, no CCTV footage, or any kind of documented proof that could prove that he was forcibly taken to Dominica in May 2021.
One of the investigators, named, Kenneth Rijock- a renowned financial crime consultant and investigator, investigated the case thoroughly and disclosed an accurate account of the events.
The comprehensive report of the American investigator cleared the confusion surrounding the disappearance of Choksi and stated that it was all masterminded by the fugitive businessman himself. Rijock put forth major findings in his investigation explaining how the entire plot of kidnapping and disappearing was formulated by Choksi.
Another resident said,” He has bribed the investigation officials in his case to scrap the red corner notice. By using the humanitarian aspect, they managed to get rid of this notice that doesn’t portray him as an innocent guy. He is the real mastermind of his several plottings and fake stories. Mehul Choksi used their money to pay off the salary of his lawyers and his bribed the legal officials so that the case can turn in his favour.”
