Thiruvananthapuram: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala demanded a probe into the allegations related to the CM’s office.
The NIA which has taken over the case registered an FIR and will probe if the proceeds of the smuggled gold were used for financing terrorism.
However, Ramesh in a letter sent to the DGP wanted more facts to be investigated.
"The state machinery has been misused in the case. The The key suspect Swapna Suresh had used the logo of the Kerala Government in her visiting cards and met many high profile officials", Ramesh said.
There are also allegations that the gold smuggled was taken from the airport in the official vehicle of the government. When such serious allegations remain, Ramesh Chennithala wanted a probe by the Kerala police as the NIA will be probing in a different angle.
