Web Desk. Indian Customs has foiled an attempt to smuggle gold from Dubai into packets of the popular drink Tang.
According to Arab News, the Commissioner of Customs at Chennai Airport said in a statement that “after filtering the ingredients of the drink, the customs officials discovered that it had been mixed with gold particles.”
Authorities investigating the racket discovered that the recipient’s address had been misused. This is a new attempt by the smugglers to evade the heavy import duty on this precious metal by deceiving them in complex ways.
Earlier this year, authorities arrested two people at Chennai airport who were trying to smuggle gold under their wigs.
The couple was arrested after their bizarre hairstyles caught the attention of customs officials. Two packets of gold paste weighing 700 grams were discovered from them.
