A woman passenger identified as Seena Mol from Thiruvananthapuram was nabbed while trying to smuggle 1.8kg of gold in compound form, which was concealed in her undergarments.
The other seizures involved 388g of gold compound from Abdul Sathar and 390g from Mohammed Faizal, both hailing from Kasaragod. They had concealed the gold in paste form in the waist band of the jeans worn by them.
Also, 387g of gold was seized from another passenger Mohammed Midlaj of the chartered SpiceJet flight.
