Kerala Gold Smuggling Case: Senior IAS officer M Sivasankar Suspended

Senior IAS officer M Sivasankar who was grilled by the Customs for nearly nine hours in the gold smuggling case in Kerala was suspended today.

Mr. Sivasankar has admitted that he had a close relationship with Sandeep, Sarith and Swapna. However, it was only an official association initially that later turned into close friendship, he said.

Sivasankar was removed from his posts after allegations surfaced that he had links with Swapna Suresh, the prime accused in the case related to the attempt to smuggle gold through diplomatic baggage using the name of a person in the UAE consulate here.
