The Attorney General of Antigua and Barbuda has asked the court to dismiss the disappearance case of the Indian fugitive Mehul Choksi as there is a paucity of enough evidence suggesting his alleged abduction. While unfolding a new chapter in the kidnapping case of the businessman, AG asserted that there is no convincing evidence has been discovered in the case.
The Attorney General of Antigua and Barbuda has also stated that the country has been wasting huge amounts of money and resources in the abduction case of Mehul Choksi.
The disappearance case of Mehul Choksi has become a matter of investigation by different investigators who have discovered a shallow narrative of his kidnapping story. The businessman was found in Dominica, went missing from Antigua and Barbuda and has decided to play the sympathy card by framing the narrative of abduction, kidnapping allegations against three individuals, fleeing to Cuba and portrayal of himself as a victim of human rights violation.
However, the findings of the investigation evidently proved that there is a lack of efficient evidence that can stand Chokis’s kidnapping story. However, there is no CCTV footage, eyewitness accounts or any other documented proof to support the narrative of Choksi.
The investigation conducted by Kenneth Rijock- a renowned financial crime consultant and investigator, has cleared the clouded story of Mehul Choksi’s disappearance and refused to accept any arguments of Choksi. He stated that the disappearance of Choksi is nothing but the framed story of his mind. He also put forth major findings in his investigation, which outlined how the entire plot of kidnapping and disappearing was formulated by Choksi.
While referring to his case as the big bluff, he added that the narratives were framed with the intent to escape his extradition to India.
The report findings of Kenneth Rijock show that Mehul Choksi had known that India will tighten restrictions on him and make him pay for the scam. The investigation also revealed that while Mehul Choksi and his transporters were en route to Cuba, he received a satellite call informing him that Cuba is no longer a secure location and that he should reconsider his decision due to potential threats.
After the change in plans, Mehul Choksi requested his carriers to relocate the boat to Dominica, believing that the entire plot of “disappearing” being modified to “kidnapping” would aid his extradition case on the grounds of human rights, so preventing his extradition to India. All the tourists involved/accused including Barbara Jarabik, Gurjit Bhandal and Gurmit Singh appears actual tourists who are victims of the MASTERPLAN of Choksi.
Furthermore, in his continuous effort to strengthen his case of disappearance, fugitive diamond merchant Mehul Choksi reportedly enlisted the services of a Hong Kong-based agency to investigate the circumstances surrounding his situation. The agency conducted an inquiry and provided a report to Choksi’s legal team. However, there are concerns about the credibility of the report, as it was paid for by Choksi. This raises doubts about whether the report can present an accurate depiction of the facts and truly serve justice in the case.
Multiple independent reports, which were not influenced by financial incentives, have dismissed Choksi’s claims of abduction and instead suggest that he was attempting to escape extradition. One such report challenging Choksi’s narrative was presented by American Financial Investigator Kenneth Rijock, who conducted a thorough investigation and provided compelling evidence that refuted the story presented by Choksi.
Additionally, a comprehensive investigation carried out by Tariq Ghaffur, a highly respected former Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in the UK, also discredited the claims of abduction. Ghaffur’s investigation revealed significant information regarding the disappearance cases and offered a different perspective on Choksi’s case.
Unfortunately, Ghaffur’s findings were intentionally disregarded in the report produced by the Hong Kong-based agency hired by Choksi.
In an attempt to support his narrative, Mehul Choksi himself released a set of reports, which were backed by the investigation conducted by the agency he hired. However, this only raises concerns about the manipulation of facts and the credibility of the overall system.
