When I came for my mother's funeral three years back, they noticed a bangle in my small hand bag. The customers asked me to show the bangle. I showed it. It was a sample glass bangle given by my wife for measurement. Now the gold rate is very and hardly any body can buy it. So why to bring such choclates and give to customers ??? They are very happy to chew it and they eat it without any hesitation. Better take the family to Dubai and buy as much she can wear. Mangalore is not a safe place to bring gold. Come through Mumbai or Hyderabad.

Sure it looks like a smuggling racket associated with a syndicate and Bhatkal is always in the news for these kind of smuggling activities.A fast buck sometime and price of custom duty sometime,i.e no ill feeling!.

This is very simple common sense, I dont think one can spend 1.5 crores of hard earned money on smuggling gold, either he had some assurance from the customs dept who let him down or he is with some big smugler who would give him some share of the profit.
Anyway I think if he would have wrapped it with black garbage bag it might have gone un detected, I have heard so not sure,for I dont have to do that.

Jossy Saldana has a point here. 6.5kg of gold means nearly AED 1.1 million. Either he is regular into this business & minting money to buy such kind of gold or some big smuggler has used him to send this gold. It is a pure case of professional smugling.

Guy's why make fun, maybe he had plans for better future if he would have escaped without getting caught.God knows... beside that why he will not try to smuggle, is our customs flexible? these days you guys who are abroad cannot get your own jewellery easily. so why make fun of others?

Good to know that from last 3 - 4 months customs officials in airport started working for the country.. Earlier all these smuggling was overlooked for sake of their personal benefits.. Good improvement.
