Indian officials accused of kidnapping
The complaint was prima facie upheld by an interim finding by Antiguan police as well as a Dominican court. Choksi had alleged that he was lured to a Hungarian woman’s flat in Antigua. Thereafter, two Indian-origin men from Britain took him to Dominica and handed him over to the Dominican police.
Indian law enforcement officers reportedly arrived secretly in Dominica on a Qatar Airways executive jet to take him to India, but were thwarted by a local radio presenter, Loftus Durand, by making public the news of Choksi’s illegal detention. Meanwhile Antigua and Barbuda Police Commissioner Atlee Rodney has denied any collusion between his force and Choksi, according to an article by an Indian news agency.
