New Delhi, Aug 3: There was no adverse information against fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi at the time he was granted citizenship, Antigua has said in a statement.
"The said police clearance certificate from the Government of India, Ministry of External Affairs Regional Passport Office, Mumbai, certified that there was no adverse information against Mehul Chinubbhai Choksi which would render him ineligible for grant of travel facilities including visa for Antigua and Barbuda," the statement read.
Choksi along with Nirav Modi are wanted in the Rs 14,000 crore PNB scam. Choksi was granted Antigua citizenship in November last year. He left India in the first week of January and took an oath of allegiance as a citizen of Antigua on January 15.
