Fugitive diamantaire and Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam accused Mehul Choksi on Tuesday debunked all the allegations labeled against him by Enforcement Directorate (ED). In an interview to ANI, Choksi said that he is a “victim of political persecution” and a “soft target” for the Indian government because it is finding it “impossible” to get other people wanted for economic crimes extradited from the UK. In his first media interview since the accusations surfaced, Choksi, who is in Antigua and Barbuda, said he was confident that the government of his new country would “protect its citizen” in accordance with the law of the land.
