In the latest development, Swapna Suresh, who is the main culprit in the Kerala gold smuggling case made the headlines after she accused former CPIM ministers of seeking sexual favours.
Swapna Suresh, who is the prime accused in the gold smuggling case, has levelled sexual harassment claims against three popular leaders of the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist in Kerala.
Her recent claims triggered a whole new political controversy in the state. During an interview given to a news channel, she went on to accuse former minister Kadakampally Surendran, the former speaker of assembly P Sreeramakrishnan and former finance minister Dr Thomas Isaac of sexual harassment.
She further added that the incident took place when she was acting secretary to the Consul General of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Thiruvananthapuram. These prominent top CPI(M) leaders were part of the previous Pinarayi Vijayan-led Left government in Kerala.
While speaking to a TV channel, she said, “Former Assembly Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan and former Devaswom minister Kadakampally Surendran asked me to have sex with them. They had approached me about this. He has behaved immorally to some extent over the phone, even face to face, behaved like this. All this does not suit people in such positions.”
Swapna added, “The then Finance Minister Dr. Thomas Isaac had also asked me to have sex. That was definitely an indirect advance. He definitely invited me. According to me, he made indirect advances and the other two were very direct. Pathetic, frustrated and unethical people.”
