Sharing the pictures, the AniguaNewsRoom tweeted, “First pictures emerge of Mehul Choksi behind bars.”

Mehul Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi are wanted in India. It is for allegedly siphoning off Rs 13,500 crore of public money from the state-run Punjab National Bank (PNB) using letters of undertaking. The 62-year-old businessman, who has been residing in Antigua and Barbuda since 2018, had gone missing on Sunday under mysterious circumstances. Later, he was taken into custody by authorities of Dominica where he was captured ‘trying to flee’ the island nation.

He was to be deported to India but a Dominica court has put a stay on the repatriation of the fugitive,  this was after Choksi’s legal team in Dominica filed a Habeas Corpus petition and highlighted that he was denied legal rights and was not allowed to meet his lawyers initially. They also claimed that “marks of torture” have been reported on his body. Choksi is currently in the custody of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Dominica.
