Mumbai Airport customs agents on Sunday seized a 12-kg gold bar with a value of Rs 5.38 crore.
A Sudanese passenger’s custom made belt was where the gold was found. Customs claims that other travellers at the airport caused a disturbance in an attempt to aid the accused in escaping, but they were ultimately defeated.
“A total of 6 persons have been detained, and 6 more are being deported,” the customs official continued.
We are anticipating more details.
An earlier incident involved the seizure of 1.3 kilogramme of cocaine at the Mumbai International Airport, which was valued at Rs 13 crore. One Ghanaian passenger was detained by the police after being stopped on August 28.
The police provided information indicating that the accused had hidden cocaine narcotics within his stomach. 87 pills were found in the accused’s stomach after he was transported to the hospital.
The Mumbai Police filed a complaint against the defendant and began to work on their ongoing inquiry.
