Let us tell you that two days ago in the high-profile Kerala gold smuggling case, two prominent accused Swapna Suresh and Sarit PS had withdrawn the bail petition filed in the special court of National Investigation Agency.
Relief from Kochi court
On the other hand, earlier this week, Swapna Suresh was granted bail by the Kochi Principal Sessions Court in a money laundering case related to gold smuggling. The bail granted by the Kochi court is considered a big relief for Swapna Suresh. Swapna got bail in this case because the customs officials failed to file a report before the court within 60 days.
Allegations of involvement in illegal activity
Despite this, Swapna Suresh will still have to remain in jail. This is because Swapna Suresh is in NIA custody in another case related to smuggling of gold. In this case, he is accused of involvement in smuggling by following the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
Significantly, several central agencies including the National Investigation Agency (NIA), Customs and Enforcement Directorate (ED) have been conducting separate investigations since the seizure of 15 crore gold from a diplomatic baggage at Thiruvananthapuram International Airport on 5 July. . The case came to the fore with the activism of the officials of the Thiruvananthapuram Customs Department.
