NEW DELHI: Gold weighing nearly 1.5 kg was seized at IGI airport on Thursday by the customs department in two separate cases. The gold was found concealed in the form of gold wires and gold sticks.
“The gold springs were meticulously concealed to look as part of the scooter and was in the form of springs. The total weight of the gold found was 1kg, valued around Rs 26.79 lakh. Both are being questioned to check if a similar modus operandi had been used before,” said a customs official.
