Stuffed in lehenga 'buttons', Saudi Riyals worth Rs 41-lakh seized at Delhi airport

The airport authorities noticed Raza’s suspicious activity based on behaviour detection at Terminal-3 of the airport.

The Central Intelligence Security Force (CISF) and airport authorities apprehended a passenger on Tuesday for illegally trying to smuggle Saudi Riyals. The passenger was found to be carrying Saudi Riyals worth 41 lakh Indian Rupee stuffed in lehenga buttons.

According to a NDTV report, the passenger identified as Misam Raza was flying to Dubai from Delhi on a SpiceJet flight.

The airport authorities noticed Raza’s suspicious activity based on behaviour detection at Terminal-3 of the airport.

The passenger was then put under thorough check along with his luggage. At the X-ray baggage inspection system, buttons in bulk were detected. Although he was allowed to complete his check in formalities, the officials maintained a close watch on him.

Meanwhile, on thorough checking of his luggage, the officials found Saudi Riyals concealed in lehenga buttons. The currency notes were made into small bundles and packed inside oversize buttons.

Raza was then intercepted by CISF officials who failed to produce valid documents related to Saudi Riyals. Raza was handed over to the custom officials.
