IMA owner Mohammed Mansoor Khan has reportedly fled to Dubai, leaving thousands of investors in the lurch.

On June 20, the Enforcement Directorate had issued a summons to Mansoor Khan, asking him to appear before it on June 24.

Mansoor Khan, in a video clip Sunday purportedly offered to surrender before police and reveal ''big names'', who he alleged were behind its downfall and feared they would kill him.
