The CBI has filed three new cases against Mehul Choksi.
The Central Bureau of Investigation has filed three new cases against Mehul Choksi, the fugitive diamantaire who is accused of defrauding the Punjab National Bank of Rs 13,000 crore. The fresh cases, which were registered on Tuesday, pertain to the alleged irregularities in the issuance of LoUs by the PNB to Choksi’s firms – Gitanjali Gems, Nakshatra Brand and Gili India. With these three cases, the total number of cases registered by the CBI against Choksi has gone up to seven.
The CBI had earlier registered four cases against Choksi and his companies – two each on January 31 and February 15 – in connection with the alleged fraud. The Enforcement Directorate, which is probing the money laundering angle in the case, has also filed three cases against Choksi.
Choksi, who is currently in Antigua, has been accused of masterminding the Rs 13,000-crore fraud along with his nephew Nirav Modi. Both of them have been declared fugitive economic offenders by a special court in Mumbai.
