Thiruvananthapuram: BJP state president K Surendran has raised sharp criticism against CPM for allegedly having links with gold smuggling gangs. He alleged that it is confirmed that CPM has been taking a share of gold smuggling in Kerala.

“Evidence has proved that CPM leaders have been operating gold smuggling activities in Kerala. Gold smugglers are conducting CPM’s dharna and rallies. The root of the case will be found in AKG centre," slammed Surendran.

He was addressing the BJP state committee meeting here on Tuesday.

“Ramanattukkara incident is a big example to prove Kerala turned a safe hub for quotation and underworld gangs. The smugglers have been engaging in the crime with the support of the state government. It is unbelievable that the home department didn’t get any information when two underworld gangs fell into a clash near an airport which comes under tight security," said Surendran.

“The gang from Kannur has links with CPM. It is confirmed that the criminals who are working for CPM in Kannur reached Kozhikode. Another gang from Cherppulasseri also has links with DYFI and SDPI. The presence of Cherppulasseri municipal chairman at the spot proves the political link in the case,” he added.

Surendran alleged that CPM is behind the gold smuggling case in the Malabar region like the Thiruvananthapuram airport gold smuggling case.

“The party is trying to escape from the case by blaming quotation gangs. The quotation gangs in Kerala didn’t get arrested as they belong to the AKG centre. Akash Thilankeri was an employee at AKG centre from 2014 to 2017. He is also involved in the murder of Shuhaib and Thilankeri Vineesh."
