Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday interrogated the prime accused of the Kerala gold smuggling case, Swapna Suresh for five and a half hours and summoned her again tomorrow. Swapna Suresh appeared before the Enforcement Directorate officials at its office as part of the interrogation in the case.

Last week, she was interrogated by the ED for 11 hours on two consecutive two days. “Crime Branch has summoned me today based on the complaint of KT Jaleel and based on the statements of dignified personalities like Saritha S Nair. But I will not be able to go today because ED is questioning me today as well. I am going to ED now. Once they finish their interrogation, after that I will go to Crime Branch. I have already informed the Superintendent of Police and the concerned authorities,” Suresh said while talking to mediapersons. “They offences include non-bailable offences. These people are going to put more non-bailable offences based on the statements of persons like Sarith S Nair, Shaj Kiran etc. I cannot do anything about it. So it’s okay. Let them go ahead. We will fight,” she added.
