THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Former Principal Secretary M Shivashankar has appeared in Customs office in Thiruvananthapuram for recording his statements. The Customs had earlier served notice on Shivashankar, asking him to be present at its office for recording his statement.

On Tuesday noon, Customs DRI officers reached the house of Shivashankar at Poojappura in Thiruvananthapuram and handed over the notice to him.
When the Customs arrived, Shivashankar was at his home and they returned within ten minutes. However, the officers didn’t answer the questions of media persons who were waiting outside.

From the beginning itself, there were allegations linking Swapna Suresh to Shivashankar. It was based on this that Customs served the notice on him.
The Customs is trying to find out whether their relationship was just a friendship or whether it had any connection with the attempt to smuggle gold from UAE to Thiruvananthapuram.
