Kochi: The court asked the Customs to produce evidences against former principal secretary of the chief minister M Sivasankar. It was directed by the Economic Offences Special Court while considering the bail plea of Sivasankar. The case was deferred to Monday to pronounce the verdict.

The Customs probe team alleged in the court Sivasankar pretended to be sick in order to avoid arrest. Sivasankar’s bail plea was considered in connection with the gold smuggling case registered by the Customs. The probe team opposed the bail plea.

Meanwhile, the court said that mere statement is insufficient and asked to produce the evidences in sealed cover and the Customs agreed. Sivasankar’s wife produced his two phones, which could not be found so far, in the Customs office in Thiruvananthapuram.

The Customs informed the court that Sivasankar pretended to be sick and sought treatment at the hospital where his wife works. They also stated in the court that the gold smuggling team received help and advices from Sivasankar.
