Earlier in the investigation, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) had, through the CBI, got a Blue Corner Notice issued against Khan, who is believed to have fled the country before the police complaints from investors started piling up. Passport authorities had also invalidated Khan’s passport upon requests from the SIT, which is probing the case in Karnataka.
