Atul Gupta, one of the three Gupta brothers living in self-exile in Dubai, will not get a new South African passport. Atul Gupta has lost the battle for this in the High Court. Atul, Ajay and Rajesh Gupta are facing a multi-billion dollar fraud case, taking advantage of their close ties to former South African President Jacob Zuma.
Atul and Rajesh Gupta are currently awaiting extradition to South Africa to face charges. The Gupta brothers fled to Dubai with their families after Zuma stepped down as president in 2018. America and Britain have also put them in the black list.
The Pretoria High Court ruled on Friday that Atul Gupta is not eligible for a South African passport as he is a fugitive. Gupta had approached the South African Consulate in Dubai in 2018 for a passport. There was no extradition case against him at that time. Please tell that Gupta Bhai is originally from Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
