Accused in Kerala gold smuggling case connected with Dawood Ibrahim: V Muraleedharan

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.

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.
