The Enforcement Directorate on Friday conducted searches at 15 locations linked to an alleged gold smuggling nexus from Myanmar to West Bengal and Chhattisgarh in India. According to sources, ED suspects that the two states have become a hub for gold smuggling, and conducted raids in connection with the same. It is unclear whether the agency has recovered anything substantial so far. Places that are being searched include Bhilai Durg, Rajnandgaon, and Raipur. Searches are being carried out mainly on jewellers and gold merchants. The raids started early morning and are currently underway.
