    I don't understand,why these gold smuggling in various mode is being continued in spite of continues detection and thorough check ups by the immigration authorities.Another funny thing is that passengers caught are all ninety per cent from Kerala passengers that too by the particular community.They are using various tactics but are apprehended at the air port by the authorities along with smuggled gold.Knowingly or unknowingly or by pressure from some people they are continuing their tactics.Still I have the doubt,whether it is for the publicity purpose or for some other reason.Before it was Mangalore airport,now they are using Kannur airport for their activities.Do the culprits think that all the authorities are fools and they are one are smart enough to cheat the authorities.If it is so,they are wrong in their thinking.First they have to understand,now it is advanced society with advanced technologies to detect,catch any type of smuggling,cheating etc .They can't be spared.Why they are doing that in the first place.Is it for greed for money or their birthright or hobby.On the other hand what immigration authorities,government doing all these haul of smuggled golds.What is the aftermath of catch.Nowhere it is mentioned about the post catch activities.Why so?

    Dear Moily, you must understand that these are one in hundred cases that are caught. May be when the squad makes a surprise ride. It does not matter for them. The rest 99 passings happen through the customs only. These guys will be let free after some time.

    Good.. Take the pollution to your own state.

    Mangaluru Airport will somehow survive, doesn't require your smuggling tactics to sustain.
