In a 34-page reply seeking a dismissal of the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) plea to declare him a fugitive economic offender, absconding businessman Mehul Choksi told the special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court that he had been corresponding with the Punjab National Bank (PNB) to settle the dues. Choksi claimed that the ED had deliberately not placed this correspondence before the court in a bid to mislead it.


The reply was submitted before special judge M S Azmi on Monday through advocates Sanjay Abbot and Rahul Agarwal. The Enforcement Directorate had moved a plea seeking to declare Choksi a fugitive economic offender and confiscate his properties under the provisions of Fugitive Economic Offenders Act.Click Here: Cardiff Blues Store
