An Indian man attempted to smuggle more than one kilogram of gold, stashed away in his bum.
Reports confirmed how the man walked in a strange manner at the airport. This alerted airport officials who decided to check and see what was wrong. To their surprise, they found more than one kilogram of gold bars, up his rear end.
Although police officers chose to hide his identity, reports confirmed how the traveler took a GoAir flight from Dubai as well as Kerala. However, that is the exact point in time where authorities discovered the surprise findings.
Meanwhile, authorities were baffled to find how much precious metal was actually present inside his rear end. It all came up to a total of one kilogram. You literally don’t need to be a pawnbroker to realize that this amount was pretty significant. At the same time, authorities expressed how you also don’t need to be an expert to understand that it’s crazy how he managed to stuff up so much.
But why did the Indian traveler choose to do this in the first place? Well, according to reports, he wanted to avoid paying a hefty amount of tax. Hence, to avoid that 18% tax upon gold bars, he chose a rather painful and bizarre route.
Airport staff immediately recognized his strange walking style. On that note, they swiftly stopped him, carrying out a thorough check. The Air Intelligence officials then escorted the smuggler to a more secure area of the airport.
Upon the detailed body search, they immediately saw some shiny cargo sticking out from his rear end. It was 1470 grams of gold in compounded form. Upon questioning, he expressed his desire to avoid paying high tariff on the amount.
Airport authorities in Kannur took to Facebook to make the bizarre announcement, sharing it with thousands of followers. It claimed how a passenger from Dubai Flight GB 4013 concealed 1470 grams of gold in his rectum.
