Sunday Express - - CHENNAI -

Chen­nai: The Air In­tel­li­gence Unit (AIU) of Cus­toms foiled a bid to smug­gle 245 grams of gold by a pas­sen­ger from Dubai who dis­solved it and filled two plas­tic cans of a known liq­uid de­ter­gent. The pas­sen­ger Ab­dul Niyas (25), who came by an Emi­rates Air­lines flight, was stopped by the AIU sleuths af­ter he walked across the Cus­toms Green Chan­nel and was mov­ing to­wards the exit. Af­ter con­duct­ing tests, it was found that the gold was dis­solved in aqua re­gia (a chem­i­cal mix­ture).
