New information just received appears to have answered our question about whether the aircraft was India's version of "Con Air, " a prisoner transport, or Choksi's proposed escape vehicle. Data shows as follows:
Qatar Executive (a subsidiary of Qatar Airways) Flight QQE248, departed Doha on 27 May, arriving in New Delhi. Departed New Delhi 28 May, arriving in Dominica, with an en route stop in Madrid.
Given these facts, it is prudent to assume that this is a flight commissioned by the Government of India, and that the stop in India was to pick up documents and/or government officials to assist in Choksi's anticipated repatriation.
