Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi are wanted by the ED and the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) for allegedly defrauding PNB to the tune of Rs 13,400 crore in collusion with a few of its employees.

The ED had prayed that Choksi be declared a "fugitive economic offender" for evading summons to appear before the agency and that his properties be confiscated under the provisions of the Fugitive Economic Offenders' Act, 2018.

Mehul Choksi took Antiguan citizenship last year after he surrendered his Indian passport and in August last year, India moved a request to Antigua for Choksi's extradition.
