Religious text issue: Customs questioning lorry owner, driver

Kochi: The Customs department is questioning two persons over the import of religious texts to Kerala. Customs summoned the two for questioning around 10 am.

Customs officials are questioning the owner and driver of the lorry in which the religious texts were transported from the cargo complex of the airport to the UAE consulate in parcels.

The Customs will seek information from two, including the items inside the luggage and to where it was taken. Meanwhile, the lorry owner and driver have reportedly responded that they did not know what was inside the parcels.

It is learned that the Customs would question C-apt officials soon. Earlier, the Customs had learned that the religious texts were taken to other places in a C-apt vehicle. Hence, C-apt officials will be questioned to learn where the religious texts were taken and to whom they were distributed.

It is also learned that Customs would question Higher Education Minister K. T. Jaleel. Items to the UAE consulate were imported under diplomatic privileges. Customs is of the observation that distributing them outside has resulted in loss of diplomatic privileges.
