A 31-year-old Sri Lankan woman was arrested this morning while attempting to smuggle into the country 100 gold biscuits worth Rs.50 million, Customs spokesman Leslie Gamini said.

He said the woman was arrested at the BIA when she was seen behaving in a suspicions manner and on examining her, it was found that she was wearing five undergarments in which she had concealed the gold biscuits.

“The 100 gold biscuits weighing 10 kilograms had been made out into two packets, one containing 16 biscuits and another containing 84 biscuits,” Mr. Gamini said.

He said this was one of the major gold smuggling attempts by a woman.

Investigations had revealed that the woman was an accountant residing in Wattala.
