Gold bars were found in the toilet of a plane flying from Dubai

Gold bars were found on a plane flying from Dubai to Delhi.

According to the publication, customs officers at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi received information about the need to check the bathroom of the aircraft upon arrival in India.

The investigation did not disclose the name of the airline on whose flight the smuggling was carried, but customs officers added that the investigation is ongoing and further investigative actions are underway.

The customs service on Twitter posted how the police searched the toilet room of the aircraft and found gold bars wrapped in tape, weighing about four kilograms.

Bars marked Etihad Gold Dubai UAE were in the passenger’s hand luggage. The 30-year-old man was identified at the airport using the Advance Passenger Information and Electronic Data Interchange system installed by US Customs and Border Protection to improve airline security.
