Kochi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) submitted the first charge sheet related to the black money transactions in the Thiruvananthapuram gold smuggling.
The charge sheet states that three accused in the case Swapna Suresh, Sarith and Sandeep Nair were all involved in black money transactions. The Investigation agency submitted the charge sheet when the court was about to consider the bail plea of the accused.
ED states that all the three accused have committed offence as per the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The submission of the charge sheet at this crucial moment is a move to stop the accused from securing bail.
