New Delhi: The chief of crew of SpiceJet’s SG-18 Dubai-Kochi found 1kg of gold hidden in the lavatory after the plane landed at Kochi Airport on Tuesday.
The customs authorities have “detained” a passenger, who is suspected to be a courier, in this connection, sources said.
Finding the behaviour of a passenger – who used the lavatory frequently – suspicious, the crew chief checked the lavatory, the sources said.
“A detailed check revealed that gold bars were wrapped in newspapers and stuck behind the tissue box holder in the lavatory,” they said.
