New Delhi, Mar 07: The National Investigation Agency has taken over the probe into the Delhi gold smuggling case. The NIA had earlier probed the Kerala gold smuggling case.
The case pertains to the smuggling of gold into the Delhi Airport from the United Arab Emirates. Sources tell OneIndia that the NIA would look at the possibility of a terror link in this case.
The Kerala case was first busted by the Customs following the recovery of 30 kilograms of gold which arrived from the UAE on June 30 2020. The NIA probe found that the gold was smuggled in a diplomatic cargo using forged authorisation letters.
