• Golden legs: Man tries to smuggle Rs 10M in gold in cast


    NEW DELHI (Hindustan Times): Customs officials at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport were in for a surprise when a man with ‘fractured’ legs whom they detained on the suspicion of smuggling saffron was also trying to sneak out gold worth Rs 10 million (about $144,000) in his cast. “A total of four gold bars — two wrapped in each leg and covered with plaster and tapes — were recovered. Each gold bar weighed one kilogram. Because of the weight of gold he wasn’t able to walk properly, though everyone thought it was because of the ‘fractured legs’,” said a senior customs official.
