Kochi: After being in receipt of Enforcement Directorate's warrant seeking asset details, Bineesh Kodiyeri is going under NIA's scanner. A notice given by ED on September 11, to State Registration Department barring the transfer and sale of Bineesh's assets, has revealed the case.
The notice has cited that the accused is assumed to have been involved in crimes under sections 16,17 and 18 of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Conspiracy for anti-national activities, granting of financial aid for the same and other offences fall under the sections. NIA had registered a case in Thiruvananthapuram gold smuggling case under the same sections.
Anoop Muhammed, who was nabbed in Bengaluru for narcotic drug case, had given a statement to Narcotic Control Bureau that Bineesh paid him Rs. 6 lakh for a hotel business. Bineesh is also under the scanner for the alleged connection between Anoop Mohammed and KT Ramees.
Bineesh had given a signed statement about his assets while he appeared for ED's interrogation at Kochi on September 9. It is learnt that the ED's notice to the Registration Department follows this. The ED served the notice to district registrars to avert practical difficulties involved in ascertaining the details of assets which are spread across several districts in the state.
It is also learnt that Bineesh has been served with another notice to be present for another interrogation.
