Man tries smuggling 1kg gold under his wig at Kochi airport. Gets caught

After the story of a man trying to smuggle cocaine worth Rs 24 lakh under his wig at Barcelona airport went viral in July, a similar case has come to light recently.

But this time, the incident took place at Kochi airport and the man tried to smuggle gold. Noushad is a native of Malappuram in Kerala.

On Friday, Noushad was travelling from Sharjah to Kerala, where he was caught at Kochi airport. He tried to smuggle over 1 kg of gold by hiding it in a compound under his wig.

He also went the extra mile to conceal the gold as he shaved a major portion of his head to make room for the gold compound. But that was to no avail, as he got caught.

Cochin Unit of Customs got a tip-off beforehand and they did a thorough verification. They have now launched a detailed probe into the incident.
