Thiruvananthapuram: The Enforcement Directorate will interrogate Swapna Suresh again in relation to the gold smuggling case. ED has summoned Swapna for questioning based on her allegation that the audio clips in her name are fake. ED has issued a notice asking her to appear at the office in Kochi on Wednesday. Swapna had raised the new accusations following the release of Sivasankar’s book.
The purported audio document of Swapna claiming that the investigation officers had urged her to include the name of the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in the case had kicked off controversy. She said that Sivasankar was behind the audio. Hence, the ED has demanded Swapna to arrive at the office for allegedly knowing more about the involvement of Sivasankar. More persons will be interrogated later after getting the statements of Swapna.
ED had questioned Swapna at Attakulangara jail during the course of investigation. She had revealed to ED that a woman police officer urged her to read out the already scripted statement and recorded the audio. The new allegation vesting responsibility of the audio on Sivasankar has prompted ED to summon Swapna Suresh for an interrogation again.
