PNB Rs 13,000 crore fraud: Mehul Choksi writes to CBI again

New Delhi: Responding to the fresh set of summons sent by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), absconding jeweller Mehul Choksi again wrote a letter to the investigative agency stating that was impossible for him to return to India and join the investigation due to the suspension of his passport and ill-health.

'Regional Passport Office hasn't communicated with me and my passport remains suspended. I have deepest respect for your offices and assure you that I am not making any excuse, whatsoever to travel to India,' Choksi said.

In a detailed e-mail reply to the CBI's notice seeking his appearance, he added, 'I am extremely held up in my business abroad and am working hard to resolves the issues it is facing due to the unnecessary closure of business in India due to untenable allegations. Further I am unable to travel to India due to my persisting health condition.'

On the first week of this month CBI had sent fresh summons a to designer diamond jewellery businessman Nirav Modi and his uncle Choksi to join investigations immediately. The agency had earlier sent summons on February 19, 23 and 28 asking them to appear on March 7.
