The Kerala high court on Tuesday granted bail to prime accused in the sensational gold smuggling case Swapna Suresh. The bail was granted in a case filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). 

Suresh, who has been behind the bars since June 2020, was granted relief on a bail bond of 25 lakh and two solvent sureties.

The high court order would now pave the way for her release from the jail. She had earlier secured bail in cases filed by the customs department and Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Five central agencies are probing the high-profile smuggling case which had surfaced after the seizure of 30 kg gold that had reached the UAE consulate in the state capital of Thiruvanthapuram camouflaged as diplomatic consignment.
