Gold Valued at Rs5.2 Million Seized as Abu Dhabi Authorities Foil Smuggling Attempt by Indian Passenger

Gold Valued In a significant operation, Cochin Customs officials intercepted a smuggler on Sunday, discovering 954.70 grams of gold valued at Rs5.2 million concealed within the passenger’s body. The intervention was prompted by profiling information, with the suspect arriving from Abu Dhabi on Air Arabia flight no.3L127 through the green channel.

Capsule-Shaped Concealment

Upon thorough examination, officers uncovered four capsule-shaped packets containing compound gold, totaling 954.70 grams. The gold seizure represents a significant value, and further investigations are underway to unveil the extent of the smuggling operation.

Ongoing Vigilance: Gold Valued

This incident closely follows a November 22 case at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, where Customs authorities seized 3735 grams of gold, valued at Rs1.99 Crores, from three foreign nationals arriving from Dubai. The individuals were promptly arrested under the Customs Act, 1962.

Customs’ Dedication to Security

These consecutive incidents underscore the Customs authorities’ vigilance in profiling and preventing illicit activities. The ongoing efforts serve as a testament to the commitment to curb smuggling and maintain heightened security measures at key transportation hubs.
