Video: Fugitive IMA jewels founder Mansoor Khan wants to return
New Delhi : Fugitive IMA Group of Companies managing director, Mohammed Mansoor Khan, on Sunday released a video addressed to the Bengaluru police commissioner, Alok Kumar, on social media platform YouTube, saying that he wishes to comeback to India.
He is accused of cheating around 40,000 investors for over Rs 2000 crores; Khan had fled from India earlier this month.
In the video, he can be seen saying that he had to leave India under very difficult circumstances; he tried to make a return on June 14 but was not allowed to board the plane. He wishes to comeback and reveal all the names involved in the scam.
The investors have so far filed around 40,000 complaints demanding that their money be returned. Khan’s current location is unknown even as his passport was suspended on Saturday.
In the 18-minute video, Khan said it was a mistake to leave India. “But those who were close to me, those in the management, politicians who were close to me and others betrayed me. I had to hide my family and nothing was planned. Everything happened on the spur of the moment.”
Khan said he trusts Kumar that he will be fair. “You have an opportunity to support the public and I want to return because of that. I do not have any selfish interest and whatever is the truth, I will reveal to your team and the investigation will have my support.”
