Customs Intelligence and Customs House officials seized 22,99,500 Saudi riyal – equivalent to Tk six crore – at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka last night.

The customs officials found foreign currency inside a luggage while screening it at the airport.

As they could not locate the owner of the luggage, they opened it in presence of other agencies and found the currencies hidden inside 34 shirt boxes, Ahmedur Reza Chowdhury, deputy director of Customs Intelligence, told The Daily Star.

With the help of tag attached to the luggage, the officials identified that it belonged to a passenger named Mamun Khan.

The passenger checked in to board a flight of Emirates, to go to Dubai, but fled from the airport without completing immigration process during the seizure, he said.

Filing of a case is underway.
