Antigua and Barbuda: The alleged girlfriend of fugitive Mehul Choksi, in an interview with Indian media houses, denied the claims of having any involvement in his disappearance from Antigua and Barbuda on May 23, 2021.
Barbara Jarabica also dismissed allegations implied by Mehul Choki’s wife Priti Choksi that she (Barbara) conspired with Indian agents to abduct Choksi and rushed him out of Antigua and Barbuda 23 2021.
She added, “I had hundreds of opportunities while driving alone with Choksi on the island and walking with him. If I desired to abduct Choksi, why would I do at the busiest place on the island during busy day hours when everyone is roaming on the streets.”
Jarabica also revealed that Mehul Choksi
met her by using a fake name, and everyone called him “Raj” around her.
The alleged girlfriend of Choksi stated that she was not running incognito nor tried to change her name, which is proof that she was not part of the abduction.
Barbara also said that Choksi tried to lure her by giving diamond bracelets and rings, which later turned out to be fake. She said Mehul Choksi had also offered her help to start a diamond trading business and real estate business.
The Captain of Calliope of Arne yacht – Fernandes Fertinant, also burst the claims of Choksi’s lawyers and alleged that on May 23 2021, he sailed from Antigua and Barbuda at 10 am after clearing the custom checks and arrived in Dominica at midnight on the same day.
Calliope of Arne is the same yacht on which Choksi was transported to Dominica as per the claim of the opposition leader of Dominica.
The recent revelations by Choksi’s alleged girlfriend Barbara and the Captain of the yacht ruptures the kidnapping allegations of Choksi’s lawyers.
The High Court of Dominica again denied the bail plea of Choksi regarding the illegal entry into the country, and the next hearing will now be held on June 14 2021.
Priti Choksi has earlier stated that Barbara is Mehul Choksi’s
friend and noted that his husband, on May 23 2021, went to meet her for a dinner appointment, and she (Barbara) is involved in his disappearance.
Queen Counsel and Senior Advocate of India – Harish Salve would counsel the Indian government on the case of fugitive Mehul Choksi.
