A 26-year-old Kerala man’s alleged entanglement with a gold smuggling gang ended in tragedy and, as it turned out, a mix-up of bodies, as police Friday said they had solved the mystery of a decomposed corpse that washed up on the Kozhikode seashore last month and arrested four people.

Kozhikode:A missing carrier of smuggled gold; a gang desperate for the contraband; a suicide bid in a rival gang; and a failed escape attempt.

A 26-year-old Kerala man’s alleged entanglement with a gold smuggling gang ended in tragedy and, as it turned out, a mix-up of bodies, as police Friday said they had solved the mystery of a decomposed corpse that washed up on the Kozhikode seashore last month and arrested four people.

How the body got there could well be the plot of a potboiler.

Irshad, a resident of Perambra in Kozhikode, returned to India from Dubai on May 14, allegedly carrying smuggled gold worth Rs 60 lakh, according to police. On July 6, he went missing, allegedly abducted by the smuggling gang to whom he failed to return the gold.
