Visakhapatnam: At Vishakhapatnam airport, over 50 kg of gold was seized by authorities from several passengers arriving from Singapore and Malaysia, officials said on Monday.

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence seized the gold from passengers who arrived here since Sunday night by two flights from Singapore and one from Malaysia.

On a tip-off that some passengers were smuggling in gold in large quantities, DRI officials conducted an operation.

The DRI officials have not divulged further details including number of arrests, saying their investigations were still on.

According to sources, the passengers had concealed the gold in LCD/LED panels, mobile phones and music systems.

The customs officials learnt about the large scale smuggling after they seized one kg of gold from three women passengers a day ago. During the questioning, the women revealed about the smuggling racket.

This is the first time that gold in such large quantity was seized at Visakhapatnam airport. (IANS)
