NIA in search of masked men who visited Swapna’s apartment
Thiruvananthapuram: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is in search of 4 masked men who visited the gold smuggling accused Swapna Suresh’s apartment soon after the gold was seized at the airport. The CCTV visuals obtained from the apartment in Ambalamuku showed this. The masked people entered the flat a day after Swapna left.
NIA has demanded the Customs to provide the CCTV visuals of the apartment complex. NIA had collected information from the son of the apartment owner the other day.
The Customs had opened the diplomatic baggage on July 5 that had reached the cargo complex on June 30. Swapna had left the flat on July 5. It is reported that the CCTV visuals had shown former IT Secretary M Sivasankar and Swapna arriving at the flat together the previous day.
On July 6, four people covering their face arrived at the same flat. The probe team believes these are the same people who had stayed at the five star hotel near Secretariat.
