Rs 50 crore Sterlite copper smuggling busted in Dubai
Thoothukudi: A clever act of smuggling in Thoothukudi came to light in a company in Dubai which led to the arrest of five persons on Saturday in the district.
Five persons, including a staff of Sterlite copper, were arrested for re­p­la­cing around Rs 50 crore worth anode slime powder, exported to Dubai from the copper smelter pla­nt, with copper smelter slag.
The 12.5 tonnes of anode slime was meticulously replaced with the smelter slag without tampering with the Central excise seal that it crossed several che­cks to reach the Dubai company.
According to Tirun­elveli range DIG Sumit Sharan, Mahendra Karth­ick (23) worked in the logistics department of Sterlite along with R. Murali Sankar (26), the container lorry supervisor, and M. Ve­n­ka­tesh (33) of Thoot­hukudi. They were appro­ac­hed by Moideen Kadher, a stranger to them, to execute the theft of the precious consignment.
The three friends lured truck drivers K. Isaac (38) and P. Muthukumar (28) with money and diverted the anode slime-loaded container trucks to a private godown at Aathi Paras­akthinagar, where they changed the original cargo with smelter slag on March 19, 2013. The culprits removed the doors of the containers without tampering the excise seal. They  loaded the slag of same wei­ght.
The fak­e consignment passed customs check at Thoothukudi port, Colom­bo port and Jebel Ali port, Dubai. But the culprits’ lu­ck­ ran out when Fujairah Go­ld, the processing plant where gold, silver, platinu­m and palladium are extr­acted from the anode slime sent by Sterlite, found on April 4 that it was only slag.
Based on information from Fujairah Gold, Sterlite lodged a complaint with the Thoothukudi district SP, who referred the complaint to the district crime branch on April 12. The culprits were nabbed Saturday.

According to the petitioners, the victim tried to commit suicide while Ravi Kiran was posted in Visakhapatnam. The incident happened during their courtship and they were not married. Later, Lt Ravi was sent on a deputation to Kenya. The matter is currently being probed  by the board of inquiry at the naval headquarters, New Delhi.

She is yet to appear before the inquiry panel. Sources added that the victim is trying to run down the credibility of the Navy.
Cases have been registered against 10 persons, including six serving Navy officers and family members, after the victim lodged a complaint regarding dowry-related assault and sexual harassment.
