The Customs sleuths arrested a Sri Lankan national and recovered 1.7 kg of gold worth 53 lakh Indian rupees that he was trying to smuggle at the Bangalore International Airport (BIA), India yesterday.

The arrested, Mohammed Hasan Nizam Den, 65, came to the City on Dubai-Bangalore EK 564 Emirates flight. Sources in the Customs Department told Deccan Herald that the movements of the accused were suspicious and he tried to enter into the Green Channel, meant for non-duty goods.

On the directions of P V Ravi, Joint Commissioner, Customs, BIAL, sleuths from the Customs D Batch, sought him and subjected him to questioning. A metal detector test showed he was hiding some metal on his person. On sustained interrogation, he confessed to have hidden a cache of gold in his rectum. The sleuths recovered 15 pieces of gold weighing about 1.7 kg from his rectum. The Customs officials told Deccan Herald that he had put each piece of gold in a condom and then put it into his rectum.

The Customs officials told Deccan Herald that they have seized all his travel and identification documents and are verifying of authenticity. (Source: Deccan Herald)

    Carrying gold in the rectum and inside underpants has now lost its sheen and originality and become so common. So the smugglers will have to come up with some other bright ideas on how to hide in other organs of the body!
