The Rajiv Gandhi International Airport saw yet another international smuggling case as the customs and security checking officials at the International terminal found a passenger arriving into the city from Riyadh via Kuwait with a sizeable quantity of gold hidden in the baggage. 


The male passenger who arrived on Jazeera Flight from Saudi Arabia was frisked for an hour. On thorough checking of his baggage, the customs officials found  763.660 grams of gold hidden in a very neat manner in cookie and chocolate boxes. The gold seized by the customs is valued at Rs. 34Lakh.


The passenger has been arrested, and a detailed interrogation is underway. The authorities are trying to find out a gang's involvement and if more people would be flying in the future and trying to establish links with African countries who played a key role in multiple heroin and marijuana seizures at RGIA in June and July. The customs at the city airport coordinate with officials at Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore airports to notify them if they make seizures from a similar set of locations in the Middle East and Africa.
