DRI arrests 7 foreigners for smuggling forex worth Rs 6 cr at Delhi airport

New Delhi: Seven foreigners, including four women, have been arrested by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) officials for allegedly trying to smuggle out foreign currency worth over Rs 6 crore at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport here.
They were intercepted when they were proceeding to board a flight to Hong Kong and their baggage was searched yesterday. Later, the recovery of foreign currency was made from their checked-in baggage.
The forex was tightly wrapped in towels inside the luggage in a manner to escape detection by security and intelligence agencies at the airport, according to a statement issued by the DRI today.
