A 37-year-old Sri Lankan was arrested this morning at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) with 37 kilograms of gold jewellery worth over Rs.70 million, Customs media spokesman Dharmasena Kahandawa said.

The suspect was arrested at the airport arrival lounge while she was trying to smuggle them into the country, he said.

"The gold jewellery was detected hidden in liquor bottles in her hand luggage”, Mr. Dharmasena said.

The customs investigations revealed the suspect was from Grandpass and arrived from Dubai by flight FZ557 this morning, he said.

The customs detection was made by Customs Narcotics Control Officials Assistant Superintendents Thisara Weerasinghe, Pradeep Lanka and Chinthana Wanigasekara.

The investigation was carried out under the supervision of Director of Customs Rohitha Uduwawala and Deputy Directors of Customs. (Chaturanga Pradeep and T.K.G. Kapila)
