Customs officials with the help of National Security Intelligence (NSI) recovered 12.3 kg gold from the lavatory of an aircraft of Biman Bangladesh Airlines today.
The Biman flight BG 128 landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport from Abu Dhabi via Chattogram around 9:20am.
Acting on the information from NSI, a team of customs raided the aircraft at 10:20am and recovered the 106 pieces of gold bars hidden behind the mirror in the toilet, said Othello Chowdhury, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Customs House.
None was arrested in this connection as the gold bars each weighing 10 tolas were found in an abandoned condition.
A departmental case will be filed in this regard.
