Monday, 21 September 2020 The National Investigation Agency (NIA), which has arrested six al-Qaeda terrorists from Murshidabad district of West Bengal, has found that more people in the state are working for the terror outfit, an official of the investigating agency said.
The Minister of State for External Affairs, V Muraleedharan, stated that the accused in Kerala gold smuggling case have connections with Dawood Ibrahim's D-company and Kerala Chief Minister's office. "NIA has said that the accused in Kerala gold smuggling case have connections with Dawood Ibrahim's D-company. This is a serious issue. I'm sure NIA and Home Ministry will take appropriate action to ensure that UAPA charges against accused stand substantiated," said V Muraleedharan while talking to ANI. 'Kerala CM's Office has been linked with the people involved in this case. So naturally, they received patronage from powerful people within the government. This is why the Kerala BJP has demanded the resignation of chief minister of Kerala," Muraleedharan added.
National Investigation Agency (NIA) has submitted in the special court, Kochi that agency suspects that the accused have links to Dawood Ibrahim's D-Company. NIA submitted this in its response to the bail petitions of the seven accused in the case. Speaking to ANI about the Kerala gold smuggling case, Leader of Opposition in Kerala Legislative Assembly and former president of Kerala PCC, Ramesh Chennithala said, "It is very shocking that the main culprit in gold smuggling case has connections with Dawood Ibrahim. It is one of the biggest crimes that happened in Kerala." "Unfortunately, state government was supporting the culprits. NIA will unearth details of this crime," he added.

It has come to light that the protest wasn't spontaneous but a conspiracy," said Surya. "Many terror modules and sleeper cells have been busted in Bengaluru. I urged HM to set up a permanent division of NIA so that anti-India activities that want to use Bengaluru as an incubator of terror activities can be curtailed. He assured it'll be set up soon," he added.
