20 gold bars seized at Dhaka airport

The Customs Intelligence seized 20 gold bars weighing two kilogrammes from inside a toilet of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka this morning.

The intelligence team conducted a drive at the airport after being tipped off about a consignment of gold arriving from Kuala Lumpur in a flight of Bangladesh Biman (BG0187) in the morning.

Later, the officials recovered the gold bars worth Tk one crore hidden in three condoms from a toilet, said Moinul Khan, director general of customs intelligence.

Offenders may have placed the gold bars inside the commode sensing special drive of customs intelligence, an intelligence officer said.

No one was arrested in this connection.
