PNB scam accused Mehul Choksi’s wife Priti has said she’s writing to Queen Elizabeth II to intervene and make sure her husband is sent home to Antigua from Dominica. “I’m going to tell her…one of her subjects has been kidnapped and subjected to human rights violations,” Priti said.
On June 3, the High Court in Dominica adjourned hearing on a Habeas Corpus petition filed by Mehul Choksi’s lawyers.
Priti alleged that her husband had been kidnapped from Antigua and Barbuda on May 23 in an operation led by Indian agencies. “All of this is already in public domain. Everyone knows what happened,” she said, when asked whether she would reiterate this in her appeal to the Queen.
“The mystery woman with whom he was last spotted is Barbara. She was an acquaintance and was a part of the kidnapping plot. Agencies from India, Antigua and Dominica have kidnapped my husband. He was tortured. At one point, some men with Indian accents on the boat had contemplated killing and throwing him in the sea,” Priti added.
“He (Mehul Choksi) cannot travel back to India because there is a threat to his… life. The kidnapping and torture have confirmed that fear,” Priti said.
New Delhi or the government’s agencies have as yet not confirmed or denied these suggestions.
