New Delhi, November 25:

Two Air India SATS (AISATS) staff are among three people arrested by Customs for allegedly smuggling smuggling into the country gold valuing over Rs 72.5 lakh.

The department said a passenger was intercepted by officials on his arrival at IGI Airport from Abu Dhabi on Monday.

“During interrogation, he admitted he was carrying two silver-coloured packets of chemical paste containing over 1.48-kg gold, which he hid in the lavatory of the aircraft (he had come in),” said a statement by the department.
