Foiling smuggling bid, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) officials on
Tuesday arrested two passengers from Dubai at the Mumbai airport and recovered
gold worth Rs 4.54 crore.

Based on specific intelligence that gold in paste form was being smuggled into India
by a syndicate of passengers who were travelling from Dubai to Mumbai on January
17, surveillance was mounted by a team of DRI officers at the Chhatrapati Shivaji
Maharaj International Airport Mumbai.

The suspected passengers were identified and intercepted by the team at the airport.
A thorough examination of the passengers led to the recovery of 8.230 kg of gold in
paste form. The value of the gold is about Rs 4.54 crore, said DRI.

Most of the recovered gold, DRI said, was concealed in the undergarments of the
passengers making it extremely difficult to detect.

Two passengers have been arrested in the above case.

Further investigation is underway to identify the others involved in the illegal inflow of
gold into the country.
