Kannur: The police have seized 832.4 grams of gold at Kannur Airport, with an estimated value of approximately Rs. 47 lakhs. The gold was seized from Mustafa, a resident of Salamath Mansil House in Chapparapadavu, who had arrived from Sharjah. Mustafa, who had cleared customs inspection, was arrested based on secret information.
Mustafa had concealed the gold in a paste form inside three capsules and hid it inside his rectum.
