The suspects have been sent to judicial custody till May 21. As per the remand, three of the suspects, arrested from a South Mumbai hotel, confessed to smuggling gold from Colombo to India.

They then led the team to the other suspects who were staying illegally in the city. “The interrogation is complete. The prosecution asked for a judicial custody of all the eight accused.
