    Airports will become real smuggling centres if our custom department is ineffective in catching the smugglers.

    This is not something new. Kudos to Mangalore customs officials for this big catch. Gold smuggling is very common these days in all parts of the country. Few are caught and many go freely as they have good connections.

    Adani's job is to manage, operate and maintain airport's facilities, not to collect customs duty or to control emigrants and immigrants.
