Chennai: Chennai Air Customs arrested two persons and foiled their alleged attempt to smuggle 3.125 kg of gold worth Rs 1.33 crore at Chennai Airport.

On examination of their checked-in baggage, eleven gold wires, concealed behind metal fabricated lining inside the baggage, were recovered. These wires were silver-coated to evade detection by Customs. The gold was seized under the provisions of the Customs Act, 1962, according to a release.
