gold smuggling

Two Saudi Airlines crew on remand

BSS, Dhaka

A Dhaka court yesterday put two cabin crews of Saudi Airlines on one day remand each in two cases lodged over gold smuggling.

Dhaka metropolitan magistrate Tofazzal Hossain put Saima Akhter and Farjana Afroza on remand as police pleaded for total 10-day remand in two separate cases.

Customs members detained the duo early Monday at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport as they reached here on Saudi Airlines flight SV-802.

Acting on a tip off, a team of Customs officials and Armed Police Battalion (APBn) searched them when they were trying to pass the green channel at the airport.

Upon searching the officials found 26 gold bars hidden inside the under inner wear of Sayma and 10 of Farjana. The estimated market value of these seized gold bars from the two air hostages, weighing a total of 4.2kg, is about Tk 2.1 Crore. The Premier Bank official, Razia Sultana, was carrying 1kg of gold worth Tk 50 lakh.
