He cites health grounds for non-appearance
Speaker P. Sreeramakrishnan failed to turn up before the Customs on Thursday for interrogation. The Speaker has reportedly communicated his inability to appear before the agency on health grounds, according to indications. The Customs had earlier served him notice to present himself before the agency for interrogation regarding the U.S. dollar smuggling case. This is for the second time that the Speaker has expressed his inconvenience to appear before the Customs. Earlier, Mr. Sreeramakrishnan had cited his election related engagements as an excuse.
