Jaipur: Accused got Rs 10,000-Rs 50,000 for gold smuggling

Jaipur: After the arrest of three employees of subsidiary firm of Air India from Jaipur International airport earlier this week following the seizure of 1.5kg of gold concealed under the seat of the aircraft, customs officials claimed that the accused were paid around Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000 though the search is still on for the person who was supposed to collect the smuggled gold.

While one arrested person was given bail, the others were sent to judicial custody. “While the matter is still under investigation, in preliminary investigation it was found that one accused was paid Rs 50,000 for the task while the other two were paid Rs 10,000 each for the same.

It appears that they had done the same thing multiple times this year though further details will come to light as the investigation progresses. At present, we are also trying to find others involved in the nexus as well as the fact if they smuggled the gold only from Dubai or some other airports also,” said a customs official.
