4 Travellers Smuggling 7.3 Kg Gold In Rectums Caught At Hyderabad Airport

Hyderabad: Customs at Hyderabad airport recovered and seized several kilograms of gold from four Sudanese passengers travelling from Dubai who had concealed the contraband in their rectums, said customs officials today.

Arriving on a Dubai-Hyderabad Air India flight, the two male and two female passengers had attempted to smuggle 7.3 kilograms of gold -- valued at approximately ₹ 3.6 crores -- into the country, when they were intercepted by customs at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, said authorities.

It is now in customs custody, and further investigation is currently underway.

This same Dubai-Hyderabad route saw a seizure of smuggled gold just a few months ago, when over six kilograms of gold paste concealed in a rechargeable lantern was recovered at Hyderabad airport in October this year.
