Kerala Gold Smuggling Case: NIA nabs two prime accused Swapna and Sandeep


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.
On July 5, Customs officials seized over 30 kg of gold that smuggled into Kerala in "diplomatic baggage". The consignment worth Rs 15 crore, addressed UAE consular general, was sent by air cargo at the international airport in Thiruvananthapuram.
NIA took over the case, citing the organised smuggling operation may have 'serious implications' for national security. On Friday, an FIR was registered against Sarith Kumar, Swapna Suresh and Sandeep Nair in the case. They have been charged with offences under various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
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.'
Several top CPM leaders, including the Chief Minister Vijayan, Speaker of state assembly P Sreeramakrishnan and others, are facing heat over their alleged involvement in the controversial gold smuggling case.
