Kochi, Sept 10 (HS): The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday questioned Bineesh Kodiyeri, son of CPI-M leader Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, for 11 hours. He was summoned by the agency on Tuesday to appear before it in connection with the Kerala gold smuggling case and Bengaluru drug case. He will be summoned again by ED for interrogation after one week.

The questioning which commenced at 11 am got over only by 10.30 pm. It is understood that the ED officials let go Bineesh on the condition that he will be available for another round of questioning.

The ED officials are not convinced by the answers given by Bineesh as there were some contradictions in his answers and what was told by Mohammed Anoop and Swapna Suresh to the investigating agencies.

Officials of ED, NIA and Customs Department are suspecting that Bineesh had an important role in gold smuggling case and he had close links with Anoop and T K Ramis (a smuggling expert who was arrested by the NIA).
