Swapna Suresh contacts VIP while in hospital
Thrissur: Swapna Suresh, the accused in gold smuggling case who is undergoing treatment at Govt. Medical College here had contacted a VIP, say reports. It is learned that a higher official at the administration level sent a message for her to the phone of a health worker who was on duty at the hospital. Responding to the message, Swapna forwarded a voice clip to him.
To pass the message to Swapna, the VIP first sent the message to another phone which was then sent to that of the health worker. It is reported that Swapna did not directly talk to the VIP over phone.
In the message, the VIP asked Swapna about her statement to Enforcement Directorate. Swapna had given reply to this message. In his second message, he advised Swapna on the matters which should be told to the probe team in the next interrogation. This message was a long one. But Swapna did not respond to this one.
Mobile phones of the Govt. Medical College employees who were on duty at the ward where Swapna was admitted were monitored by NIA.

Hence, NIA was monitoring the mobile phones of all staff who came into contact with Swapna.
Swapna was under the protection of Kerala police whenever he was taken outside the jail. As the gold smuggling case raised allegations against state government and CPM, NIA also observed the movements of the police who accompanied the accused.
