Was Mehul Choksi Honey-Trapped?


Dominica: Reports in Antiguan media and Mehul Choksi’s lawyers are claiming that he was tricked by the Indian and Antigua agencies which led to his arrest.

Reportedly, he was arrested from Dominica when he was visiting his girlfriend Babara Jarabica. The woman is a property investment consultant and has studied at the London School of Economics, reports said.

Sources have said that the woman befriended the diamantaire during morning and evening walks in Antigua. On May 23, she invited Choksi to her home for a meeting when he was abducted and taken to Dominica.

Mehul Choksi’s lawyers have even claimed that Jarabica was used to ‘honeytrap’ the PNB Scam accused. They said that Jarabica had befriended Choksi as per a plan by the Antiguan agencies.

Mehul Choksi is wanted in the Rs 13,500 crore Punjab National Bank fraud case. He was arrested in Dominica on Wednesday for allegedly entering the country “illegally” from Antigua and Barbuda, where he has been living since January 2018.
