“We received information that a passenger from Kozhikode will bring gold from Sharjah to Coimbatore on March 23 via the Air Arabia flight.
We seized it and opened it on Monday, and found 1,200g of crude gold in the form of a hollow cylinder inside.
The gold was seized and the passenger was detained,” an officer said.“Jamshid, a labourer, had flown to Sharjah twice for ‘work’ but this was the first time he was caught being a courier of smuggled gold.
He doesn’t seem to know who the gold was intended for, just that someone will pick it up once he walks out of the airport building.
