Delhi: IGI customs seizes 4kg silver-coated gold jewellery worth Rs 2.06 crore

The Customs Department at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI Airport) in Delhi has seized silver-coated gold jewellery weighing 4.00 kg worth Rs 2.06 crores brought by three Kuwaiti nationals. The three men, identified as Mohammad Aqeel, Mohammad Yousuf, and Mohammad Waseem, arrived at the IGI Airport on August 28, 2023, on a Kuwait Airways flight. They were intercepted by Customs officials at the Green Channel while they were trying to leave the airport without declaring the jewellery.

The officials found that the jewellery was coated with a thin layer of silver to make it look less valuable. The actual gold content of the jewellery was 80%. The three men have been arrested and charged with smuggling. They are currently in judicial custody.

The customs duty on gold imported into India is 25%. The total customs duty payable on the seized jewellery is Rs 20,60,000.
