Chennai: 103 Kg Gold In CBI Custody Goes Missing, Madras HC Orders Probe

Chennai: Over 100 kg of gold was found missing from the custody of the CBI which seized the gold in a raid. The incident came to light on Friday when the Madras High Court directed the police to probe the disappearance of 103 kg of gold worth Rs 43 crore from CBI custody.

The gold, which is a part of 400.5 kg in the form of bars and ornaments was seized by the CBI in 2012 during the raids at Surana Corporation Ltd in Chennai.

The seized gold was kept in the safes and vaults of secure enclosures of Surana under CBI’s lock and seal. The CBI said that it had handed over the 72 keys of the locker to Chennai principal special court for CBI cases and no date pertaining to handing over the keys was mentioned in the documents.

Meanwhile, the CBI claimed that the gold seized all together weighed 400.5 kg but while handing over to the liquidator, appointed for a settlement of debts between Surana and SBI, it was weighed individually and that was the reason for the discrepancy.

However, the court refused to accept the report and directed the rank of SP to probe the case within six months. The liquidator then approached the high court for which the order was issued on Friday.
