Scamster Mehul Chowksi could be brought back!

Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi have been in the news ever since a gargantuan Punjab National Bank scandal running into more than Rs. 12,000 CR was unearthed early this year.  They both managed to flee India before the Indian agencies could arrest them.

Most recently, India requested Antigua to detain the fugitive Choksi, who has been confirmed to be living in the Caribbean island.  Following this request, Choksi approached the High Court of Antigua with the request to block the Indian government's efforts to extradite him.  

Latest, a statement has been made by Antigua's Foreign Minister Paul Chet Greene.  Speaking to a national TV channel, he has said that his country is ready to consider the extradition request of the Indian government.  He has also confirmed that an extradition treaty that dates back to 2001 is already in place.
