Brown said, ‘The problem is that if Choksi is sent back because he is a citizen of Antiga, even though his citizenship is unstable, he still has constitutional and statutory protection.

According to ‘Antiga News Room’, a private aircraft of Qatar Airways landed at Douglas-Charles Airport in Dominica, after which there has been speculation about Choksi’s extradition. Choksi, who went missing under mysterious circumstances from Antiga and Barbuda, was caught in the neighboring Dominica. Brown told the Redisha show that the aircraft had arrived from India with the documents required for Choksi’s extradition.
Indian authorities, however, have not officially confirmed this. According to publicly available data from Q7’s executive flight A7CEE, the aircraft took off from Delhi airport at 3.44 am on 28 May and reached Dominica at 1:30 pm local time on the same day.
The High Court of Dominica has barred Choksi from being taken away from it and further action will be decided in this case only after a hearing in open court on June 2. Choksi has alleged that Antiga and Indian-looking policemen abducted him from the jolly port in Antiga and Barbuda and took him to Dominica.
A picture of Choksi from Dominica has surfaced in which her eyes were swollen and there were scratch marks on her arm. Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi allegedly embezzled an amount of Rs 13,500 crore from Punjab National Bank. Nirav Modi is lodged in a London jail and is fighting a case against extradition to India.
Choksi took citizenship of Antiga and Barbuda in 2017 and fled India in the first week of January 2018. Only after this scam came to light. Both are facing CBI investigation.
