In a decisive step, the Enforcement Directorate will interrogate Minister K T Jaleel in connection with gold smuggling case. Earlier the ED has said that a ‘prominent person’ has to be questioned in this regard.
Minister KT Jaleel’s moves have been viewed suspiciously since the very beginning of the case. Reportedly he had contacted Swapna Suresh, accused in the case, over the phone several times.
Earlier, it was found that the distribution and distribution of Ramadan kits and Quran from the UAE Consulate without the permission of the Central Government was a serious breach of protocol.
Some of the 250 packets, which reached the UAE consulate in the guise of Quran, were sent to Malappuram using a C-APT vehicle and then to Bhatkal in Karnataka.
The state protocol department informed the NIA, Enforcement and Customs that no packages, including these packets, had been received through the diplomatic channel for the past two years.
