One person was arrested after the Chennai Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) seized 8.7 kg of gold worth Rs 2.44 crore smuggled from Sri Lanka at Mandapam near Rameswaram in India.

The seizure was made when a three-member team of senior DRI officials from Madurai and Tuticorin, acting on a tip-off, intercepted a car and searched it on Madurai-Rameswaram highway at Nagatchi, about 40 km from Rameswaram, police said.

They took into custody 31-year-old Mujibur Rahman, the lone occupant of the car who hails from Enmanmkondan village near Uchipuli.

The gold biscuits had been allegedly smuggled from Sri Lanka and were being taken to Tiruchirappalli when DRI officials seized it, police said.

Earlier the Coastal Security Group (CSG) had seized gold biscuits, weighing more than 35 kg, smuggled from Sri Lanka by sea, and arrested two persons.(PTI)
