Both were employees at the UAE consulate in Thiruvanathapuram. The Gold Smuggling came into light when suspicious baggage marked as diplomatic was seized by the customs at Thiruvananthapuram airport.

According to reports, customs officials got suspicious when Sarin produced an unauthorized letter. Moreover, Swapna Suresh also telephoned top Customs officials and asked them to hand over the baggage to avoid dire consequences.

The series of events has forced customs to dial their higher officials in New Delhi, who gave green signal to open the baggage. Upon opening, customs seized over 100 kg of Gold imported from the UAE. The consulate attache in Thiruvanathapuram has denied any role in the smuggling and was not aware of Gold inside the baggage. It is learned that Sarin went to collect the baggage with a fake ID.

Kerala Savaari

The much-awaited Kerala Savaari app is now available on Google Play Store. The app will be initially available on Android followed by iOS devices. Even though Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan inaugurated the Kerala Savaari service on August 17, the approval of the app from Google got delayed due to unknown reasons. Finally, the Kerala Savaari app had landed on Google Play Store. It will take some time for the people to get familiar with the service.

Kerala Savaari service is a joint initiative of the Kerala Government and the Kerala Motor Welfare Workers Board. The Government is marketing the app by stating that it’s an alternative to Ola and Uber. The main advantage of Kerala Savaari is that the cost is based on fixed rate as announced by Kerala Government. The concept of surge pricing as adopted by Ola/Uber is not implemented on the app. The Government claims that there are over 350 Auto and 200 Taxi workers who have joined the initiative. There are over 25 Women drivers as well. The total number of vehicles is expected to increase when the service gets a wider rollout across Kerala. The service will be available in Kollam, Kochi, and Thrissur over the next 3 months.

You book a ride, get information about the cost and pay accordingly. The payment can be done either via cash or wallet money. The wallet money will be useful only if you are riding frequently. Otherwise, you need to opt for cash. The ride is for a one-time drop and you need to book again to return. The Kerala Savaari app is developed by ITI Limited, Palakkad for Kerala Government. To install the app, you should search for “kerala savaari on the Google Play Store.
