Gupta jet lands in Moscow

Johannesburg - Where in the world are the Guptas?
In Russia it would appear, if the flight radar of their private jet ZS-OAK is anything to go by.
The Guptas may have had to fly commercial airlines for a month when their jet was apparently grounded over the festive season, but it wasn't long before their private wings were flying high again.
The Gupta family's private jet, a Bombardier Global 6000 business aircraft registered as ZS-OAK, flew from Dubai to Zurich on December 13, where it remained for six days before taking a 36-minute hop to EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg in Switzerland.
There the plane stayed put for more than a month before taking to the skies again on January 25.
It was widely reported in December that the Guptas had fallen behind in their scheduled repayments of a loan that financed ZS-OAK.
While it isn't clear who is using ZS-OAK, the end destinations of the flights indicate it is still in the possession of the Gupta brothers.

The plane has been flying backward and forward between India and Dubai, in a similar way that it was before its trip to Zurich in December.

According to flight radar applications the jet flew last on Tuesday from Dubai to New Delhi. Today it took off from India and flew to Moscow.

The Gupta brothers call both Dubai and India home.
