NEW DELHI: Accused in the Rs 11,300 crore PNB fraud and the owner of Gitanjali Gems, Mehul Choksi today released a letter to his employees in which he said that he has done nothing wrong and truth shall prevail.

“I will face my destiny and I know I have done nothing wrong and ultimately the truth shall prevail,” Choksi said in a letter released by his lawyer Sanjay Abbot.

Choksi expressed his “helplessness” to clear the dues of his company’s 3,500 employees as investigative agencies have seized his bank accounts and other properties.

“I am facing a lot of problems due to the manner in which the multiple investigative agencies/ government agencies have started to create a havoc, hell bent upon stopping the operations,” he added.

Highlighting the “situation of fear and injustice” created against him and the company, Choksi suggested to employees that in view of the uncertainty looming over payment of dues, termination of office operations, and “unfair investigation”, they begin scouting for alternate career options.

The top businessman also clarified that laptops, mobile phones issued by the organisation can remain with employees until dues were cleared, adding that relieving letters and experience certificates would be issued to them when necessary.
