The customs officials who found the duo behaving suspiciously had questioned them. However, when they could not give satisfactory answers the officials checked their baggages when gold was found  hidden  inside consumer items.

The passengers  whose identities are yet to be revealed  were  later arrested  and produced before the Principal Civil Judge (Senior Division) and Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mangaluru. Both have been remanded to judicial custody for 15 days.

Investigations are underway.
