The diplomatic baggage gold smuggling case suspect, Swapna Suresh has accused the Kerala Crime Branch of harassing her and asking for documentary proof, if in any respect accessible along with her, in opposition to Veena Vijayan, daughter of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, as a substitute of probing the conspiracy case registered in opposition to her.
Talking to reporters in Kochi on Thursday, Ms. Swapna alleged that the Crime Branch had threatened to implicate her in riot instances except she evaded HRDS India, which had already terminated her service, and her lawyer R. Krishna Raj. The CB had filed the conspiracy case in opposition to her on a petition by former Kerala minister Ok.T. Jaleel.
She claimed to have proof of the enterprise transactions involving Ms. Vijayan. “Rather than probing about the conspiracy case, CB is asking for the content of my confessional statement before the magistrate in the gold smuggling case registered by the Enforcement Directorate and copies of the evidence against Veena Vijayan. The confession statement is about the gold smuggling case and not Veena Vijaya’s business ventures. They are actually tutoring me about how that statement was useless. So be it, but still, I had to tell everything somewhere,” she mentioned.
Ms. Swapna alleged that the CB sleuths had been citing the Facebook posts of her lawyer to indicate how he was in opposition to communists. “But what has it got to do with the conspiracy case against me,” she requested. Ms. Swapna alleged that HRDS India was compelled to terminate her within the wake of steady harassment by varied authorities departments at their varied models.
Ms. Swapna mentioned she would struggle the case until the tip and stand by her allegations even when she is harassed to a degree the place she is left with no job, meals, or dwelling and is left on the streets.
