The man boarded an Air Arabia flight to the city of Jaipur in India yesterday (April 23).

Airport officials conducted a check on the man and found gold that was wrapped in capsules and hidden away at the man’s bum.

99.5% Gold

Investigations revealed that inside those capsules were granules of gold.

“The 791 gram gold of 99.50% purity valued at Rs 42,79,310 (about S$76,700) was extracted and was seized,” the airport official said.
