Qatar Airways' private jet sent by India to get Mehul Choksi leaves Dominica

The Qatar Airways' private jet that was sent by India to bring back fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi from Dominica has left the Caribbean island country after nearly seven days, according to public flight data.

The Qatar Executive flight A7CEE had left the Delhi International Airport at 3.44 AM on May 28 carrying necessary documents related to cases against Choksi. It had travelled to Marigot in Dominica via Madrid as Choksi's lawyers filed a habeas corpus petition before the Dominica High Court.

The aircraft was parked at Marigot for nearly seven days to bring back Choksi, who is wanted in the Rs 13,500-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, to India.

The jet took off from the Melville Hall Airport in Dominica at 8.09 PM (local time) on June 3 as the High Court adjourned the hearing on Choksi's petition on Thursday.

The publicly available flight path shows the jet travelling towards Madrid.

However, Indian agencies did not confirm if their teams that had gone to bring back Choksi are returning on the flight.

According to media outlet Antigua News Room, Judge Bernie Stephenson will decide the next date of hearing in Choksi's case after meeting both sides.
