Key accused in Kerala gold smuggling case ready to turn approver

Sep 30, 2020 20:07 IST

A key accused in the Kerala gold smuggling case on Wednesday moved a plea in the Special NIA court here, expressing his willingness to turn approver. Sandeep Nair, who was arrested by NIA from Bengaluru along with prime accused Swapna Suresh, said he was ready to disclose the facts and was well aware that his statement would be treated as evidence against him also.

Multiple agencies including NIA, Customs and Enforcement Directorate are probing the case of smuggling of gold worth over ₹100 crore through diplomatic baggage addressed to the UAE consulate at Thiruvananthapuram.

Swapna Suresh and Sarith were former employees of the UAE consulate and allegedly used their past connection to smuggle gold using the diplomatic channel.
