Man held at KIA with gold concealed in shoes
The customs officials at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) on Monday arrested a man for trying to smuggle gold bars worth Rs 58.60 lakh. The arrested, V M Fahad (37) of Goa had concealed the gold in his shoes. He landed at the KIA by flight AI 994 from Dubai. The sleuths grew suspicious after observing his body language.

“Concealment in shoes is an old trick. Passengers try to smuggle gold by carrying them inside their shoes thinking that it would be difficult for sleuths to check all 200 passengers, but we have our own methods to keep an eye on smugglers,” said an officer.
