Kochi: The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau has approached the court seeking WhatsApp chats relating to Life Mission project deals. The probe agency has sought copies of chats between M Sivasankar, Swapna Suresh, both accused in gold smuggling case and Sivasankar’s chartered accountant Venugopal.
NIA had approached the court last week stating the chats were crucial in proceeding with the probe in Life Mission deals.
The next phase of the probe will begin only after obtaining the copies of the chats.
