Passenger held with gold bars at Ctg airport

A team of Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID) recovered eight gold bars from a passenger arriving from Oman's capital Muscat at Shah Amanat International Airport in the port city yesterday.

CIID sources said a Customs Intelligence team under the SAIA Circle started surveillance after a Regent Airways flight from Muscat landed yesterday morning.

Acting on a tip-off, the CIID team challenged Md Mohiuddin when he was about to leave the airport's green channel at 9:48am. Primarily, he denied carrying any gold items.

However, in the face of interrogation, he revealed that he was carrying eight gold bars inside his rectum, said CIID Director General Dr Shahidul Islam.

Later, the bars weighing around 934 grams were recovered from his body, he added.

Legal action was taken against him under baggage rules, Shahidul said.
