In a significant development in the ongoing investigation into a major gold smuggling case, the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has issued diffusion notices against Amala Roka, a central figure implicated in the illicit operation involving 60 kilograms of gold.
The issuance of these notices follows a recommendation by the National Control Bureau (NCB), a move confirmed by Navraj Adhikari, spokesperson for the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB). Roka’s alleged involvement in the smuggling of 60 kilograms and 716 grams of gold from Hong Kong to Kathmandu has placed this case under intense scrutiny by law enforcement agencies, with the CIB leading the charge.
Roka’s identification as a key figure in the smuggling operation underscores the gravity of the case, prompting swift and coordinated action on both national and international levels. The diffusion notices issued by Interpol serve to alert law enforcement agencies worldwide about Roka’s involvement and to facilitate her apprehension for further investigation and legal proceedings.
The gold smuggling case has reverberated through Nepal’s law enforcement and regulatory agencies, highlighting the persistent challenges posed by transnational organized crime and illicit trade networks. Authorities remain vigilant in their efforts to dismantle such operations and hold perpetrators accountable under the full extent of the law.
