“Kerala CM supports all illegal terrorist activity for the benefit of her daughter”: Swapna Suresh
“That day, I received a phone call from UAE consulate officials (in the state capital) asking me to talk to Vijayan about this matter, so I called his secretary.
Suresh alleged that Vijayan supports “any illegal terrorist activity to smooth the business demands of his daughter’s interests”. Suresh is the main defendant in the Kerala gold scam, which involves the seizure of 30 kilograms of 24-karat gold worth Rs 14.82 crore at Thiruvananthapuram airport in July 2020. The suitcase from which the gold was recovered was being delivered to the UAE Consulate in Thiruvananthapuram.
Suresh, a former employee of the UAE consulate, was questioned about the case. Officials investigating the Kerala gold scam claimed it was the first time in history that such a large-scale smuggling attempt had occurred under the name of a foreign country’s diplomatic office.
