Palakkad: Swapna Suresh, accused in the gold smuggling case broke into tears and collapsed before the media while responding over the arrest of her lawyer Adv R Krishnaraj. Reiterating her stance on her statement against Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and others in the gold smuggling case, she condemned the attack against her and the people around her.
She pointed out that Shaj Kiran had warned her that her lawyer will get arrested. As his statement turned true, Swapna expressed deep disappointment over the lawyer’s arrest.
“I had released the audio to reveal the attempts to reveal attempts of negotiation to withdraw my statements. I just wish involvement of all people should come out,” said Swapna.
The audio clip featured the conversation between Shaj Kiran and Swapna.
Swapna alleged that police booked her lawyer as the negotiation attempts failed.
“ Shaj Kiran’s warning turned true. He told me that Sarith will be kidnapped. Why are they attacking me like this? I still stick on to the statement which I have given,” said an emotional Swapna.
“ I have lost my lawyer now. I guess all the lawyers will be bought now. You can kill me. But stop killing other people,” she added.
