Thiruvananthapuram: The National Investigating Agency is once again raiding the Kerala State Centre for Advanced Printing and Training (C-apt) in Vattiyoorkavu in connection with the delivery of Quran in Malappuram.
The NIA had on Tuesday raided the C-apt and recorded the statements of former MD of C-apt and the staff. Reportedly the officials recovered a Quran allegedly taken from the delivered packet that was kept in the residence of a staff in C-apt.
There were also allegations that GPS of the vehicle that transported Quran to Malappuram was not functioning once it crossed Thrissur. Hence, technical experts will also be with NIA to check the GPS.
The NIA’s second raid comes after staff stated that they travelled to Malappuram with the Quran as directed by their higher officials. The staff also could not give valid answer to the question on why were the Qurans brought to C-apt.
Minister K T Jaleel is the chairman of C-apt. The confidential documents of the government are printed at the C-apt. It is for the first time that parcels were brought from outside and transported in their vehicle.
