34 other businessmen too have fled India along with Nirav and Mallya: ED


Daijiworld Media Network

New Delhi, Apr 16: The Enforcement Directorate on Moday told a special judge that apart from Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi, 34 other businessmen who had criminal cases against them too have fled the country.

Special public prosecutors D P Singh and N K Matta of ED, opposing the bal plea of Sushen Mohan Gupta, alleged defence agent arrested in the AgustaWestland VVIP choppers scam, told judge Arvind Kumar that "Mallya, Lalit Modi, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Sandesara brothers (Sterling Biotech Ltd promoters) had deeper routes in the society yet they left the country. There are such 36 businessmen who fled from the country in the last few years."


Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi

During the argument, ED's advocate Samvedna Verma told the court that the probe was at a crucial stage and the agency was trying to find out who was "RG" referred in the diaries of Sushen. Verma also accused Gupta of influencing the witnesses in the case and told the court that he also tried to destroy the evidence in the case.

The court reserved order on Gupta's bail application for April 20. Gupta has sought the relief on the ground that the agency has already completed the investigation and filed a charge sheet in the case.

In his bail application, the accused told the court that the ED's contention of the flight risk can be rejected considering his past activities, where he joined the investigation as and when summoned.

Gupta was arrested by the agency under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The ED officials said Gupta's role in the case came to light on the basis of disclosures made by Rajiv Saxena, who has turned approver in the case after he was deported from the UAE and arrested by the agency here.

It is suspected that Gupta has in his possession some payment details in the Rs 3,600 crore purchase deal of AgustaWestland VVIP choppers and the link is to be unravelled, they said.

    Chor Chowkidar and his 34 chor.

    Vijay Mallya defunct Kingfisher Airlines- Rs 7,500 crore.

    Mehul Choksi promoter of Gitanjali Jewels and his nephew Nirav Modi- Rs 14,000 crores.

    Sterling Biotech Ltd.—Chetan Sandesara, Nitin Sandesara, and Diptiben Sandesara— allegedly defrauded banks of Rs 5,383 crore.

    The promoter of Winsome Diamonds Jatin Mehta, who is reportedly now a citizen of St Kitts, the Caribbean, allegedly cheated banks to the tune of Rs 4,625 crore.

    Nillesh Parrekh, Umesh Parekh and Kamlesh Parekh, promoters of Kolkata-based Shree Ganesh Jewellery House, also feature on the list—the amount involved is Rs 2,672 crore.

    Sabhya Seth, promoter of Dwarka Das Seth International, for allegedly defrauding Oriental Bank of Commerce to the tune of Rs 390 crore.

    Rajiv and Alka Goyal, promoters of Surya Pharmaceuticals, for allegedly committing a fraud of Rs 621 crore.

    From Nirav Modi to Vipul Ambani, India 'Chowkidar Chor Inc's' recent scams turn In-laws into outlaws. 'Marriage arrangements help ensure that control over capital doesn’t go out of the community.'

    Ironically, Winsome Diamonds Jatin Mehta, who is reportedly now a citizen of St Kitts, the Caribbean, son married to Gautam Adani's niece.
    Nirav Modi brother Nishal Modi married to Mukesh Ambani's niece Isheta Salgocar.

    The Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill is the government’s PM Modi's BJP response to the embarrassment of a string of large bank defaulters fleeing the country after duping them of several thousand crores of rupees. The proposed legislation, approved by the Cabinet, imposes a blanket ban on economic offenders contesting the seizure and sale of their assets and properties without a trial in a court.
    Now with such tight in-laws of Ambani's and Adani's will, Chowkidar Modi going bring the economic offenders back to India? How the money looted from the banks will be recovered?

    Venezuela: the country that should have been so rich but ended up this poor. Is Modi's India next?
    Jai Hind

    These 34 are only the biggest sharks; what about the 1000s of mid & small sized fishes who gobbled 100 crore & less of innocent people's money! Stock market is filled with umpteen stories of such fishes, but no mention anywhere for obvious reasons as our regulators are only for "name sake" !!

    Let us also know how much commission has been taken by BJP to make them run.....????? RBI gives details of such fraudsters to the government, and the Government instead of arresting them makes them go out of country by taking money from them.

    What's the use of Chaukidhar, if so many can steal under his nose and easily run away?
    What's the use of securitymen if others attack the Minister and run away?
    Under able leader, no one should dare to steal, even if they steal, they should have been caught, here they not only stole but ran away also. Useless Chaukidhar 😀

    Sid, The robbers who ran away were cronies and friends of Modi. They were exaulted and praised by MOdi who took them to Devos and mehul Choksi was actually called Mehul Bhai and praised by Feku.. Whereas Vadra is very much in India and Feku cannot do anything at all. No Black money no mehul Choksi , No Nirav modi, No Lalithj Modi, No Mallya nothing all Bakwas.. nothing to show at the end of 5 years,,, Only Foreign tours and Escorted the modis and the Choksis out from India. Passage away from India . What a escape to victory for the Gujju Chors...Why no raid on Amith shahs son Jay Shah

    "It is suspected that Gupta has in his possession some payment details in the Rs 3,600 crore purchase deal of AgustaWestland VVIP choppers and the link is to be unravelled, they said."

    Why aren't the details confiscated and made public ? Is Modi afraid that his attempt to source evidence for the amount to have paid to Sonia Gandhi will be futile ? If nothing comes out as to have paid her, his hardwork of five years will be drowned in Ganga ??

    Is he waiting for the election season to pass so that he will be elected and then even if it proves her non-involvement it doesn't matter because his rule for another five years is sealed anyway ???

    All these people will start a company by name Hindustan Leaver Ltd. They have shown to us that educated people need not sell pakodas, if there is talent, one can sell the bank. We need not worry about our banks, govt will collect all the money with interest form middle class.
