Four gold biscuits were later safely removed with the help of medical professionals. The gold bars weighing 349.80 gms in total were  found to be of 24 Karat purity and valued at around Rs  10.5 lakhs.

The passenger, on interrogation admitted that he is a regular in this business and as revealed from his passport has been frequently landing at various airports like Mangaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmadabad, Chennai, Kochi, Trivandrum, Kozhikode, Bangalore, Goa and Lucknow. He also revealed that he conceived this ingenious way of smuggling gold into the country by hiding it inside his rectum as he knew that the Customs Check at airports will concentrate mainly on baggage screening and frisking, but concealments like this will largely go undetected.

Further investigation in the case is in progress
