The CBI's clarification came after Choksi sent a letter to the investigating agency refusing to appear in front of the agency.
He said ''I'm not in a position to travel due to my persisting health problem. I had a cardiac procedure which was conducted in the first week of February 2018 and there is still pending work to be done on the same".
Earlier Nirav Modi had also written a letter to the Punjab National Bank stating his incapability to pay back the loan amount. He also blamed the bank for defaming his brand.
