“Tipped off, members of preventive team detained Rahman as he was trying to pass through the Green Channel area in the airport hastily. He came from Singapore via Bangkok to evade our surveillance. After searching his body and luggage, we found the gold bars worth around Taka 1.75 crore,” joint commissioner SM Sohel Rahman of customs told BSS.
Two cases were filed in this regard and the arrestee was handed over to Airport Police Station.
Another report adds, A mobile court has sentenced an Ansarman and an informal taxi operator for their proven involvement in a passenger baggage theft at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA), country’s main gateway.
