Dhaka Custom House (Preventive Team) detained two people, including a passenger and a flight attendant, with 30 gold bars worth about Tk2.21 crore from the Green Channel area of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HISA) on Saturday.

“The gold bars weigh 3,4 kgs... and the estimated value of the illegal gold is about Tk2.21 crore,” Deputy Commissioner of the Dhaka Customs House (preventive team) Mohammad Abdus Sadek told BSS.

The detainees were identified as passenger Momenur Rahman alias Mominur and flight attendant Md Nazrul Faraji.

The airport official said Momenur arrived in Dhaka on a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight from Saudi Arabia around 12:30am and the airport employee helped him to cross the Green Channel.

“The gold bars were recovered from the battery of a charger light. The flight attendant along with the passenger was handed over to the airport police,” he added.

A case was filed in this connection.
