Bengaluru: The Karnataka Police have registered a criminal case against four customs officers in connection with the disappearance of 1.7 kg of gold from the godown of the Customs office located in the C. R. Building on Queens Road in Bengaluru, Karnataka, sources said on Monday November 1.

Based on the complaint by Superintendent of Customs (Vigilance) Gopal M., Commercial Street Police have booked a case under IPC 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant), 420 (cheating) against two superintendents and two inspectors of the Customs department.

The missing gold was seized in separate cases of 2012 (722 grams) and 2016 (1,042 grams).

The incident came to light during the inspection by the deputy director on July 15. The complaint mentions that the accused officers have failed to produce the missing gold and they had misused it.
