The Enforcement Directorate has rejected jeweller Mehul Choksi’s offer to join investigation into the alleged fraud he and his nephew Nirav Modi caused to Punjab National Bank in Antigua, and requested the Bombay High Court to direct Choksi to return to India “at the earliest”. 
In a counter affidavit submitted before the High Court earlier this week, ED has termed as “erroneous, misleading and wrong” an affidavit submitted by Choksi claiming he is unable to return to India due to persistent health problems. 
The central agency has offered to arrange for an air ambulance along with a team of medical experts to ensure a “safe journey back home” for the businessman wanted by ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation for his alleged role in the Rs 13,570-crore PNB fraud case.
