According to information from the NY Post, Air Intelligence Unit officials suspected the way the passenger was walking and decided to search him, when they discovered the hiding place.
The attempt to smuggle gold resulted in the man’s arrest at an airport in southern India. He did not want to pay the 18% mandatory tax at customs.
On the same flight, another passenger was also arrested trying to smuggle almost a kilogram of gold, but the authorities did not reveal how he hid the material.
