It was also alleged that the complainant was earlier arrested in a customs case of gold smuggling and later got bail with a condition that he would appear before Customs office on every second and fourth Monday, to sign in a register.

The arrested accused were produced on Tuesday before the Principal Special Judge for CBI Cases, Hyderabad and remanded to Judicial Custody.
