In­dian Con­sulate not filmed

Gulf News - - Nation - — S.S

Gulf News has ver­i­fied that the vi­ral video posted by Justin Van Plet­zen was shot out­side the Busi­ness Atrium Cen­tre in Oud Metha where IVS Global is lo­cated and not out­side the In­dian Con­sulate in Dubai as claimed by a sec­tion of the me­dia in South Africa.

IVS Global is the out­sourced agency for pro­vid­ing doc­u­ment at­tes­ta­tion ser­vices to the In­dian mis­sion.

Sources told Gulf News that Ajay Gupta, who is re­port­edly wanted by tax au­thor­i­ties in In­dia on charges of money laun­der­ing and tax eva­sion, had in­deed vis­ited the agency’s of­fice on April 4. He holds an In­dian pass­port is­sued in Jo­han­nes­burg and vis­ited the IVS of­fice for at­test­ing some court pa­pers to be sent to In­dia, sources said.

Con­sul Gen­eral of In­dia in Dubai, Vipul, said: “We have no in­for­ma­tion that he had come to our con­sulate. But if he has gone to one of our out­sourced agencies, we will have to find out whether he has sought any ser­vice and what it is.”
