Fugitive businessman Mehul Choksi’s girlfriend Barbara Jarabica clarified that she had played no role in his recent kidnapping, claiming the 62-year-old himself had approached her in Antigua in 2020.
Jarabica alleged that Choksi’s family and lawyers were dragging his name into this fiasco and that it also caused stress among his own acquaintances.
“I was a friend of Choksi. Choksi introduced himself as Raj and approached me last year when I visited. He became friendly and then started flirting. He also gave me diamond rings and bracelets which turned out to be fakes, ”the lady said in a report from India today.
She further mentioned that the businessman gradually began to develop sympathy for her, even expressing to Jarabica that she was her soul mate.
The woman, however, revealed that Choksi’s obsession had started bothering her recently, although the duo struck a deal to do business together in May this year.
The fugitive tycoon has apparently also insisted that Jarabica has settled in the Caribbean islands themselves.
“I have nothing to do with his kidnapping. My name is dragged along by lawyers and family members of Mehul Choksi. My family and I are stressed, ”said the oft-cited“ mystery woman ”.
She added jokingly, “We had a bit of a fight when he tried to kiss me in his office. If I had to do an abduction, why would I use my name.
On the other hand, Choksi allegedly claimed that Jarabica befriended her staff to accompany her on her night walks, later asking her to come and pick her up from her home on May 23 when eight to ten members of the Antigua police captured him.
