National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested the prime accused in Kerala gold smuggling case. Both the accused, Swapna Suresh and Sandeep Nair were arrested from Bengaluru yesterday evening. The accused will be taken to the NIA office in Cochin today. Both of them were on the run following the gold seizure.
Swapna was employed in Space Park and Kerala State Information Technology Infrastructure Limited (KSITL), which comes under the IT department, a portfolio held by Kerala Chief Minister. The Opposition has already demanded CM Vijayan's resignation for an 'impartial probe.'
