Gold worth Rs 41.6 lakh seized at KIA

Bengaluru: Customs officials at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) have intercepted two air passengers’ gold smuggling attempts and retrieved gold worth over Rs 41.6 lakh from their possession.

Both passengers were Delhi locals who had arrived in Bengaluru on the afternoon of Tuesday January 18 by Flydubai flight FZ 405 from Dubai. The officials involved in passenger profiling pulled these two passengers aside for interrogation after noticing that they were walking in a suspicious manner.
