Man Tries Smuggle Nearly a Kilo of Gold Up His Bum; Busted Due to ‘Suspicious Movement’
INDIA — A man was arrested after trying to smuggle almost a kilo of gold up his bum.
Mohammad Sharif was “moving suspiciously” when cops at Imphal Airport, southern India decided to give him a check-up.
What they found was less 007, more The Man with the Golden Bum.
After an internal search, Mohammad was allegedly found to have almost a kilo of gold wedged up his backside.
India Times reported he was on his way to New Delhi when his subtle ploy was rear-ended at the last moment.
Mr Sharif was told he only became a person of interest to the Central Industrial Security Force because of his “suspicious movement”.
It was then, during the examination, that his flaky plan was revealed.
Officials found Sharif was hiding over 900g of gold in paste form via his rectum as he was passed through Imphal Airport in Kerala, southern India.
After careful removal, the gold was weighed in at 909.7g.
Its value is thought to be around Rs 42 lakh, or just over $57K.
