    May be he had this gold in hand bag and then went to toilet to conceal it, otherwise Dubai body metal x ray detector will trigger a alert. now I know why many people rush to toilet often..

    Thanks to Adani's takeover of the airport with international standards of vigilance, security and maintenance. Shortly, Dawood will go bankrupt.

    Adani's takeover is restricted to management, maintenance and security of the airport premises; not customs and immigration affairs which are handled by Central Govt. officials.
