NIA to quiz Bineesh Kodiyeri
Kochi: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will interrogate CPM state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s son Bineesh Kodiyeri in connection with the gold smuggling case. Bineesh was questioned by the Enforcement Directorate a few days back in Kochi for 12 hours. The NIA has sought details regarding that.
The quizzing would revolve around the Bengaluru drugs seizure case. The Southern office of the NIA has collected information from the Narcotics Control Bureau. The NIA is presently not investigating the Bengaluru drug seizure case officially but had made a preliminary enquiry to know if any anti-national activities was carried out.
Bineesh had given financial help to one of the accused in the Bengaluru drugs case and Kochi native Anoop Mohammed several times. Anoop had given a statement that Bineesh had funded a restaurant that he started a few years ago. The NIA wanted to know if the money was used to buy drugs from foreigners.
