Giving relief to Mehul Choksi, the court has said that he will have to return for the case of illegal entry into Dominica. Choksi has been allowed by the court to go to Antigua for medical care.

Let us tell you that in the last week of June also, there was a hearing in the court of Dominica in the case of Mehul Choksi. That time also Mehul could not appear in the court due to ill health. He had also appeared in the last hearing from the hospital itself.
