Bhubaneswar: Custom officers once again seized huge quantities of gold from a person at the Biju Pataik International Airport here this morning.
According to reports, the officers seized 610 grams of gold biscuits, worth about Rs 20.50 lakh, from a person, identified as Amarjit Singh of Punjab on his arrival at the airport from Bangkok.
Amarjit had kept the biscuits inside his turban. He first didn’t agree to put off the turban saying the logo on the turban-cloth was sensitive to the metal detector. But the officers took him to a room and asked him to take off the turban. Astonishingly, two big Australian gold biscuits were found.
Amarjit has been arrested and further investigations are on, said police.
