India is paying through its nose to fetch a fugitive who has already fleeced its banks of millions.

A Bombardier Global 5000 jet, purportedly chartered by the government, was despatched to Dominica where Mehul Choksi is waging a legal battle against his extradition.

The aircraft is parked at a runaway in Dominica since May 27, when it offloaded its precious cargo of legal files on Choksi and an 8-member team from India which has to steer the deportation proceedings in the island city.

According to a quotation sent by a private travel agency to news magazine India Today, a week's return trip to Dominica from India will cost around $449,000 (approximately Rs 3.28 crore). This 13-seater charter flight is managed by two pilots and a flight attendant.
