Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Tuesday Jul 7, 2020


Thiruvananthapuram : All who might be involved to the gold smuggled via diplomatic channel at Trivandrum Airport should be subject to in-depth probe and brought before law, said CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan . The government is tough on its stand in the matter and  will ensure that whoever found guilty does not escape prosecution, Kodiyeri added.  

No one connected with the smuggling racket will obtain any kind of support from LDF or its government. Allegations kicked up by some quarters are baseless and motivated by political intentions. The probe is currently underway and Customs, a central govt agency, is expected to array all probe findings in coming days, said Kodiyeri.
