A massive embarrassment for the Pinarayi Vijayan government. A day after the NIA quizzed Kerala Minister KT Jaleel, the customs department has registered two separate cases against the Kerala government.
This is regarding consignments of Quran and dates that were allegedly received by the Kerala government from the UAE consulate via diplomatic channels.
This is alleged violation of the protocol of the norms which is why customs has now stepped in and filed these two cases.
Earlier, it was only Kerala Minister KT Jaleel who was in the dock when the NIA and the enforcement directorate quizzed him but now these two cases that have been filed by the customs is against the Kerala government itself.
