PNB Scam: Mehul Choksi Moves Court Seeking Cancellation of Non-Bailable Warrant

On Wednesday (June 27th, 2018) Mehul Choksi, the promoter of Gitanjali Gems and one of the key accused in the multi-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam case, moved a special court in Mumbai to seek cancellation of a non-bailable warrant (NBW) issued against him.

The application has been moved before special CBI court judge J C Jagdale.

In the application, he claimed that he cannot travel back to India because of his medical condition and that he was unable to disclose his current location as he was facing a threat to his life from various persons.

Further, Choksi mentioned in the application that he never sought to avoid the investigation or the probe agencies and had duly responded to all the communication that he received from them.

He also contended that his case is completely different from that of his relative and billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi and that his assets were attached by the Enforcement Directorate on the basis of an FIR filed by CBI pertaining Nirav Modi even though he had got nothing to do with it.

The judge after the hearing directed the CBI to file a reply and posted the matter for hearing on July 11.

Earlier, the special court, after taking cognizance of the second charge sheet filed in the case, had last month ordered the issuance of the NBW against Choksi.
