Thiruvananthapuram: The NIA is taking evidence in Thiruvananthapuram with the accused in the gold smuggling case. Evidence is being taken at the five-star Hotel in Thambanur with two accused, including Jalal, a native of Muvattupuzha. The report said the evidence was used to further validate the allegations that the accused were involved in the gold exchange and conspiracy. Earlier, it was alleged that Jalal was involved in money laundering.
Meanwhile, the NIA told the court that the dream had an impact on the CM’s office. One of the main accused in the case, Swapna, had objected to the bail plea. The NIA found that Shivashankar was a dream come true and that it was Shivshankar who offered him a job at Space Park. Dreams have an impact abroad as well. Even after resigning, they were paid a thousand dollars by the consulate. The dream was to call the customs officials to release the seized gold. NIA clarified in court.
But so far no evidence has been found to link the accused to terrorism. Dream’s lawyer says NIA could not find him. The lawyer said that Swapna only said that he knew the Chief Minister. Earlier, the NIA had sought clarification on the circumstances under which UAPA could be imposed on the accused and to produce the case diary. The court had asked the NIA. However, it is learned that only a partial case diary was produced by the NIA.
