Economic Offences court rejects Swapna's bail plea

Kochi: A court in Kochi on Thursday dismissed the bail plea of the key accused in gold smuggling case, Swapna Suresh and her co-accused, saying their instant release would certainly hamper the successful progress of investigation by the Customs Preventive Commissionerate.

Dismissing the bail applications of Swapna and Said Alavi, Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Economic Offences, said the court has found "great force" in the submission of the Customs that the petitioners are likely to tamper with evidence and help the absconding accused in the event of granting bail.

The court observed that Swapna, who is the third accused in the case, is an "extremely influential lady" and even after her resignation from Consulate, she continued to help the top officials of the UAE consulate in Thiruvananthapuram.

"That apart, she managed to obtain employment in the project proposed by the state government. Her extreme influence in the corridors of power is evident from the available records. Such woman is not entitled to benefit of the proviso to Section 437 Cr PC," the court observed.
