Thread on the missing 100 Kgs gold from CBI

In an unusual order, perhaps for the first time in history, the Madras HC has ordered a state Crime Branch CID probe into 100 Kgs of gold which went missing from the custody of CBI. 1/n

State CB CID officials will now probe the role of the elite CBI agency in the missing ingots weighing more than 100 Kgs. 2/n
When the CBI probed this case, the role of several IAS & ITS (Indian Trade Service) came to light. The role of Dr. Swarna, IAS, then Joint Development Commissioner, Special Economic Zone, Chennai also came to light. 3/n
Dr. Swarna is now the Secretary to government, P&AR, Government of Tamil Nadu. When an Addl SP went to examine Dr. Swarna with regard to this case, she threw a tantrum as to how an ordinary Addl SP can examine her and rang up TN Home Secretary to suspend the Addl. SP. 4/n
All the All India Service Officers involved in this case, using their bureaucratic clout in Delhi, ensured that this case never saw the light of the day.
Surana Corporation Limited, whose 400 Kgs gold was seized by the CBI, moved heaven and earth to ensure that their 400 kgs of gold were released. They filed a slew of petitions before the Madras High Court to get it released and had entered into an understanding 6/n
with two Judges of the Madras HC viz Justice CS Karnan and B.Rajendran.

This author regularly covered the hearings in the Madras HC regarding Surana’s gold and wrote scathing pieces, indirectly indicating that both these judges have been compromised by Surana. 7/n
Justice B.Rajendran developed cold feet and directed the registry to post the matter to another Bench. Justice CS Karnan, after reserving orders on this matter delivered a verdict after six months, dismissing the plea of Surana to release the 400 Kgs gold. 8/n
The Suranas, failing in all their attempt in getting the 400 Kgs of gold from CBI custody, finally broke and declared insolvency.
It’s quite a twist of destiny that the 400 Kgs of gold saved so meticulously with the hard work of several fine CBI officers now appears to have been stolen by the CBI itself.
