CPI's Raja says Choksi looted India under nose of Narendra Modi government
Bank fraud fugitive Mehul Choksi looted the country under the very nose of the Narendra Modi government and fled to Antigua, National Secretary of CPI D Raja said.
Bank fraud fugitive Mehul Choksi looted the country under the very nose of the Narendra Modi government and fled to Antigua, National Secretary of CPI D Raja said today, demanding that the Centre respond to the Caribbean nation's assertion that Indian authorities did not give any adverse report to stall granting of citizenship to him.
"All this was happening under the very nose of the Modi government. Why was no action taken against Choksi? He has looted the country and the people's money and fled away. He has taken the citizenship of another country. All these things were known to the government agencies. The government must answer," said Raja.
He is wanted in India by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate probing the fraud, the biggest banking scam in the country.
The CBI had sent its request to the Ministry of External Affairs for the extradition of Choksi.
