Fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi, one of the prime accused in Punjab National Bank Fraud, may get deported to India within weeks and not months as expected, according to senior advocate Harish Salve. “I don’t have that kind of experience in Dominican courts, but hopefully we should be taking weeks rather than months,” Salve said.

The Indian government has sought Harish Salve to fight the deportation case in Dominica. The government has, however, not made any announcement on engaging Salve in the case yet. “The Govt needed some guidance on how to present the case (Mehul Choksi) and how to deal with it. They reached out & I’ve been helping,” said Harish Salve, former Solicitor General of India, in a conversation with Times Now.

He further stated that they will ensure to get Choksi back. “If Dominica sends Mehul Choksi back, we will bring him back home to India where he belongs”, said Salve.

Revealing further details Salve shared that all those allegations against Dominica Police (by Mehul Choksi) have been strongly rebutted. “We are working to strategy to extradite (Mehul Choksi). If things play well, we should be able to get him back home (Mehul Choksi),” he added.
