Fact Check:

The messages mention about former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh’s wife arrested in Dubai for carrying Gold worth 5 Crore rupees. They also show a notice from Dubai Customs allegedly proving same. They claim Shivraj Singh’s wife went to hide the stolen gold, but Dubai Customs caught her. No, the claims in messages and the ‘notice’ are not true.

Messages about Shivraj Singh’s Wife Arrested

The messages in question are doing rounds on Facebook and other social media sites in mid-May 2019. The alleged notice from Dubai Customs to Sadhna Singh, the wife of Shivraj Singh carries the date 17th February 2019. It mentions about non-payment of custom duty for 18KG Gold parcel seized from her on 20 August 2014. It says the final notice is to pay the same, failing which a non bailable warrant will be issued and the matter shall be handed over to Interpol. The letter of notice appears to come from Ahmed Butti Ahmed, Director General of Dubai Customs.

Firstly, there are no such credible news reports related to Shivraj Singh’s wife arrest in Dubai for carrying gold worth 5 crores. Moreover, as of this writing, the Director General of Dubai Customs is Ahmed Mahboob Musabih. Ahmed Butti Ahmed mentioned in the ‘notice’ was also the Director General of Dubai Customs, but he retired long back in March 2014. All these flaws conclude to saying the Dubai Customs notice is fake and the messages about Shivraj Singh’s wife arrested in Dubai are just hoaxes.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
