Mangaluru, Oct 18, 2015 : Gold worth Rs 30 lakhs which two passengers who arrived by a flight from Dubai had hidden in a mixer grinder was seized by the Bajpe police while the duo was waiting for a vehicle near the parking area of the airport on October 17.
The two had somehow managed to avoid getting trapped by customs officials inside the airport.
The arrested persons are Fazal Rahman (27) and Abdul Latif (23).
This probably is the first time that those smuggling gold were trapped outside the airport. Both the accused have been produced before the court.
Bajpe inspector TD Nagaraj and his team conducted the operation.
