PNB fraud case: Petition seeking SIT probe filed in Supreme Court
A petition has been filed in Supreme Court on Monday seeking an SIT probe in PNB Fraud Case. Vaibhav Khuraniya, who has invested in accused Mehul Choksi 's Gitanjali Gems, alleged that Mehul Choksi fled India after getting an interim protection.
Vaibhav Khuraniya said, " We had invested in Gitanjali and met Mehul Choksi in the process. We opened a store, within 1-2 months we realised that the company is in bad shape. Our store was shut down within 3-4 months. The company duped us and stole our stock worth Rs 80 Lakh."
Khuraniya alleged that Mehul Choksi misused the interim protection given by the High Court and fled the country.
"We complained to police but nothing happened. We went to court following which FIR was registered. Court proceedings are underway. Amidst all this he filed notice in High Court to quash the FIR. So he was provided an interim protection and fled," he said.
He further said that The drama had begun in 2013 and fraud started back in 2011-12. We had informed CBI, SEBI, EOW, ED, had they been alert on time he wouldn't have escaped. However we had this intuition that he is bribing his way out and the matter isn't reaching to higher authority.
