    Custom department should organize a fashion show, where smugglers can cat walk with gold fixed in their rectum, to create awareness! Next time, if a custom officer stares at your back then don't think he or she is admiring you! They are literally checking on you for GOLD!!!

    There is not a single day when smugglers are not intercepted at MIA, Kannur and numerous other airports, in South India.. Even gold is smuggled in Kerala, in the baggages of diplomatic personnels !!! These are syndicates who use these buffoons to carry out their subversive activities. The intentions are to weaken and destabilize our nation !!!
