Ramees admits to smuggling gold 12 times
Kochi: KT Ramees stated that UAE native Dawood Al Arabi is the man behind the gold smuggling case. Ramees admitted that he smuggled gold 12 times from UAE but denied knowing Faisal Fareed, who is another accused in the case.
Initially, the gold was smuggled in the name of Kolkata native Mohammad. Gold was smuggled four times in the name of Mohammad for Bava and Shaji. The gold was kept inside a water purifier. However, officials grew suspicious when gold was smuggled for the fifth time. So the cargo was sent back. It was after this incident that they started smuggling gold in the name of Dawood Al Arabi, he said.
Dawood is a close associate of Shaji, who is another accused in the gold smuggling case. The cargo-carrying gold was sent from UAE by Dawood and Rabins. Ramees also told the customs department that Faisal Fareed is a friend of Jalal, who is an accomplice in the crime, and that he had no relationship with him.
Meanwhile, PS Sarith has given a statement to the customs department regarding Karat Faisal. Sarith revealed the details that were shared with him by Sandeep Nair. He revealed that Sandeep told him Karat Faisal is the main investor behind gold smuggling activity. The statement given by Sandeep Nair’s wife regarding Karat Faisal and Karat Razakh had come out the other day.
