A shocking revelation, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) indicate the role of global terror group Islamic State in the recent gold smuggling in Kerala. The agency made a sensational claim in the Kerala High Court on Friday saying that they have an intelligence report which says that there are “Islamic State” links to the Kerala gold smuggling racket.
NIA strongly argued that no bail should be permitted for Swapna Suresh and other accused since they have been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The counsel informed that they have strong evidence against Swapna Suresh, Sandeep Nair and Sarith that they were involved in the gold smuggling racket and they should be interrogated by the agency to find out the emerging links.
Meanwhile, Swapna Suresh’s advocate sought an FIR copy which NIA has refused to furnish since its a serious matter of concern. The Kerala High Court has adjourned the matter to Tuesday stating that the court will look whether it can admit a bail plea to the people who have been booked under the UAPA act.
