Mumbai couple arrested at airport for hiding gold inside belt buckles, wrist watches and jeans tags

Kolkata: A young couple from Mumbai were arrested at the airport in West Bengal capital Kolkata for allegedly smuggling 24 gold bars valued at around 11.5 lakh concealing them inside belt buckles, jeans tags and large dial wrist watches.
The couple -- Ramchand and Sneha Kukreja, both in their mid 30s and residents of Thane in Mumbai -- had reached the city airport from Bangkok and were about to board a flight to Mumbai on Wednesday morning when Central Industrial Security Force officials nabbed them during the security check.
"The man's belt buckles looked suspicious and when we checked them we found thin gold bars concealed inside them. Next we began frisking him thoroughly when we found gold strips attached behind denim trouser tags," said a senior airport official.
The CISF officers then called back the two registered baggage of the couple and found similar bars at other belt buckles, inside casings of large dial wrist watches and inside two M-seal tubes.
