A man was arrested with gold biscuits worth over Rs.10 million hidden in his rectum early this morning while arriving from Dubai, by the custom officials. The biscuits said to be 24 Karat gold and made in Switzerland, weighed close to 1800 grammes.

This is reportedly the largest haul that a suspect has tried to smuggle into the country in his rectum.

During questioning, the 48-year-old resident of Trincomalee had said he was paid Rs. 100,000 for smuggling in the gold.

The raid was carried out at the Airport arrival lobby when the suspect had arrived to the country from Dubai in a Sri Lankan Airlines flight at 7.30 am. (Nirmala Ferdinandus)

    Oh sucks....what a place to hide the gold.....

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 26 December 2013 08:47 AM

    Wow! The rectum, of all places, has now become the most common repository for very valuable stuff like gold. One is now convinced that the story going round the internet about how the that place became king among the various body parts, is after all not a joke!

    This sure will make it to the Guinness book.

    usually gold found in mines...but in this wonderland gold can be found in rectums...

    Panda Thursday, 26 December 2013 09:57 AM

    Will see what happens at last, and how much will be seized and how much will dissapear like Heroin.The joke is that when I brought a new TV they never charged any duty and I again took it back abroad. But when I was bringing it back again home after using some time abroad they recorded it as an item I have purchased through my duty free allowance.

    Optimal use of space for maximum revenue.

    So you are telling me that he craps gold?

    I too can earn extra money by hiring my rectum

    Karigalan Thursday, 26 December 2013 12:09 PM

    The way cost of living increase

    We all have to use rectum for survival

    Banana rep Thursday, 26 December 2013 12:11 PM

    Give this more publicity the demand for gold will drop. Now woman will want to wear rectal gold around their necks.

    leena Thursday, 26 December 2013 12:17 PM

    I hope the inspection itself was not done in the airport lobby. What a shi*** day for that man, must have been an uncomfortable flight

    taurus Thursday, 26 December 2013 01:34 PM

    Sure can in many other ways too. Mervyn, Wimal, Keheliya are all that.

    h5mind Thursday, 26 December 2013 02:06 PM

    He could have fashioned it into jewelry, worn it about his neck, an we would not be reading about this fellow or his rectum today.

    Disgusted Friday, 27 December 2013 04:17 AM

    Like what Panda said, I sent my used phone by mail to my wife declaring it. It was held at Trincomalee and wife informed to come and collect it. She has to travel a distance of 400km up and down. It was opened and she was charged Rs 800.00. But when pasengers bring in 2 or 3 or dozens of mobile phones while returning from Middle East or any other place, these are not checked or doesn.t need to go though customs or Trinco style procedures. So the correct path is always discouraged here in Sri Lanka

    Optimum utilization of resources!
