Flight from Dubai
“On information, we recovered the gold bars wrapped in black cloth, which weighs around 33 kilograms, from the waste basket of a toilet of an aircraft of flydubai around 11:00am,” said Md Iqbal Hossain, senior assistant superintendent of airport Armed Police Battalion (APBn).
None was arrested in this connection, he added.
Around 150kg of gold was seized at the airport in the last four months.
On July 24, 116-kg gold wrapped in black cloth was recovered from the luggage chamber of a flight from Dubai via Kathmandu. Nobody was arrested in connection with the smuggling.
Iqbal said: “Most of the people who smuggle the gold are not the owners. They just pass it on to the next person in the chain.”
